The Beauty Of Not Figuring It Out Quickly.

The difference between success and failure often comes down to how long you keep looking for answers.

You will always have problems. And it will always take you time to find answers.

So it is only natural that you grow weary of the constant churn. It is natural that you grow annoyed at your own inadequacies.

But without problems or the relentless search for answers, you won’t find breakthrough.

Like a butterfly emerging from its captivity, your struggle is what builds beauty.  What you think is pain is really just life making you tougher. Making you smarter. Crafting you into the type of leader who is worthy of the task at hand.

So, regardless of the problems you are facing right now or how slow you seem to be as finding answers, find inspiration in the simplicity of knowing that what you’re doing isn’t just learning but making something beautiful for everyone around you to see some day.

And that is probably worth the frustration you feel.
