Nothing Significant Can Be Accomplished Without Preparation.
Preparation. Does this word scare or give you inspiration at every moment? There is nothing significant that can be accomplished without equipping or training ourselves. “A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in the world, as the one which enables him to sustain a failure” [Bernard Iddings Bell]. Don’t tolerate failure to meet you without you being prepared.
When you spend time preparing yourself, no one will stop you from accomplishing a good result. I agree with Fred Couples when he said, “When you’re prepared, you’re more confident. When you have a strategy, you’re more comfortable.” The most significant people are those who prepare themselves today to accomplish tomorrow. H. Jackson brown Jr. remarked, “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.”
Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.” Can you constantly progress if you cannot equip yourself? Impossible! Ralph Waldo Emerson declared, “Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for there victories.” Our readiness to undertake the outstanding opportunities and courage to start living a high-quality life can greatly add to our success. “It is better to be prepare for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared” [Whitney Young Jr.]
Life is about preparation, not luck. Consider what Seneca said, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” When Abraham Lincoln discover the importance of preparation, he said, “I will prepare and some day my chance will come.” The same kind of preparation that brought you to where you are today, can necessarily accomplish your dreams when better chances runs your way. With your permission, nothing difficult can stop you from going forward.
Malcolm X said, “Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” When you focus your time and attention on things you are gifted to do, every limitation that should stop you from progressing, run absent–people begin to imitate you. Raymond Berry said, “The most prepared are the most dedicated.”
As a refugee youth, I've value the importance of Preparation than Pleasure! You can do the same and live your Dreams.
May God bless your day!
