I was watching a movie this week, and I noticed an actress that has a very good eyesight acting the part of a blind lady, and she acted it well, so well that if you are getting to know her for the first time, you would think that she is a blind actress. This actress has taken her time to put a little more effort in her career so that she can act parts that other actresses cannot really act.
Have you ever seen people digging a well before, they don’t just stop when they see a little drop of water, they put a little more effort in assuring that they get plenty of water.
A popular saying says that ‘’It is only an average mind that would do the same thing all the time, and would be expecting another result’’. All we need to do is to put a little more effort so that we can expect a different and spectacular result.
Are you about to give up on your academics, your family, your ambitions, your friends, your business, your ministry, or anything it might be? Maybe you are tired of giving your best because you have tried and tried and it’s like you are not doing anything and you have decided that the only option is to give up, or back out of that particular project, why not put in a little more effort.
I know you might be wondering and pondering that what little effort do you need to put in again when you have tried and tried and tried and still you have not gotten any result. We cannot be versatile in life, if we do not put in that extra effort in everything we do.
We are kings and queens and we deserve nothing but the best, but if we must be the best and get the best, we must be willingly ready to put in that little more effort that is required to make it to the top.
Don’t forget that when you came into the world, people were smiling, and you were crying. We should always strive to make sure that when we are leaving this world the reverse is the case, people are crying, and we are smiling. This cannot be really achieved if we do not put that little more effort in everything we do, to bring the best out of others, your community, your state, your country, your nation, and the world as a whole.
We must be conscious of the fact that in life we have two options, either to focus on what’s lost or fight for what’s left. Fighting for what’s left is all about forgetting about the past, putting on your armour of courage and bravery, and putting that extra effort in assuring and determining that you not only recover but you overtake and be better than the best you can be.
There is a space for everybody to be at the top, but those at the top are those that have put in that extra effort, those that never gave up and those that are willing and ready to overlook their failures and put in that extra effort.
You are the next celebrity and problem solver the world is waiting for, you are the next professional in your field the world is waiting for, you are the next billionaire the world is waiting for, you are the next inventor the world is waiting for, you are the next best student the school is waiting for, you are the best worker your company is waiting for, You are the next motivational speaker the world is waiting for, you are the next agriculturalist the world is waiting for, you are the next prophet the world is waiting for, you are the next engineer the world is waiting for, you are the original YOU the world is waiting for.
I know and I am sure that you have been working hard, why not put in that little more effort because I know you can do it, I know it’s in you and it is achievable by you.
You are the only you the world has, and that’s why you are special and unique in your own way. All you need to do to show that uniqueness is to put in that extra effort.
Thank you for taking your time, and putting that extra effort in ensuring that you read this article.
