THE LIE WE WERE TOLD

Overtime, we have been perpetually deceived by others especially the teachers in school and the parents at home.

We were told that the higher we go, the easier it becomes. This is contrary when life is lived in the real sense.
Uptill now, some are still living in this deception.

I know a place where things are not hard, I know a place where things are easy, please welcome to 'the kingdom of the children'
The bible even says in Ecclesiastes 12:1 that

“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say I find no pleasure in them”

So, the only period when things are easy is when you were kid. The period when you have not started thinking about being rich or being poor.

To be great doesn't mean life is going to be easy.
Its hard for the poor to get rich but its harder for the rich to remain rich
So, if you want to be great, you should not pray for life to be easy or works toward easy life, rather you should pray for the fulfilment of your vision. And the fulfilment of your gigantic vision will not come into reality through easy means

To move to next stage of life, you must apply an effort.
Life is like a staircase, it takes effort to keep moving up.
The more your effort, the more you climb.
You stop moving up when you stop applying effort.

In conclusion, If hardwork can get you up there, more hardwork will keep you up there.
