Success takes hard work and discipline. Rome didn’t grow to be the empire that it was, because they sat around dreaming of what could be. They got to where they were, because they worked hard to acheive those goals and they were disciplined enough to not stray away from those goals.
Of course, there are many more factors to be considered on the road to success such as: your timing, your determination, your luck, etc. A lot of this stuff are things you have no control over. Sometimes things will go your way, and other times they won’t.
Keep yourself disciplined and work hard. You’ll have your success in no time.
