This one quality is what sets apart the weak from the strong, the poor from the rich, and the masses from the stars who shine. It’s continuing to do something when you don’t want to do it anymore. It’s constantly working towards a goal until that goal is achieved. It’s not quitting when you know there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It’s a never say die attitude and the understanding that Rome wasn’t built in a day and hard work is what pays off in the end. I’m sure everyone is familiar with the Thomas Jefferson quote, “I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.” People who believe in God attribute luck to God. I personally feel this attitude is for the moronic. Things get accomplished by an unwavering tunnel vision towards completing something. Luck is hard work paying you back.

I didn’t have any real motivation to write this post aside from Sam’s comment on one of my posts that read “That’s my #1 answer when people say “why do you have a blog” (in a very condescending tone).” The people who ask that question have no determination and are the spineless jellyfish of the world. They see no value in keeping a blog and will scoff at others for no other reason other than to put you down. I’ve seen many personal blogs come and go and I can’t think of many people who would maintain a blog for 4+ years and not receive a single cent for their contribution. It’s not about the money for me. It’s putting my ideas onto a platform that will be around in my life for the rest of my life. I’ll purchase for the next 200 years so my thoughts will never be lost. Money means nothing when compared to time and what you do with that time. The smartest people are the ones who realize that time > money. When you spend your time achieving your goals, you can’t go wrong. One of this blog’s goals is to gain an audience and hopefully a place where people can come together and kick around ideas. I know participation is minimal (there were 5 posts in a row with a comment!) but I’ll keep plugging away until it happens.
