Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle. Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat; the redeeming things are not happiness and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle. Success is the sum of small efforts – repeated day in and day out. It is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence. There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.
