A wise person once told me, “Dreams don’t work unless you do.” Today I need youto embrace what comes hard today I need you to accept the challenge, today I need you to fallin love with the process. And I mean all of the peaks and valleys. I signify all of the high-pitcheds and lows. I mean all of the declines and spurts. I need you to set your internal GPS to the destination of next grade and begin your trek to greatness. Your journey tothe destination of graduation will be a bumpy one but you must keep going, stay focused and keepyour eyes on the loot. As your GPS leader you Don’t be alarmed whenit says, “Keep straight. Turn right on Failure Boulevard Keep driving.” In a half a mile makea left on Setback Lane.Keep driving. In a quarter of a mileturn right on Adversity Avenue. Keep driving. In two miles, turn left on Bad Day Drive Keep driving. In 10 miles, turn righton Heartbreak Street. Keep driving. And the directions will continue but the recurring topic is Keep driving. Just like the repeat themein this message is keep going, deter grinding Because your adage is and always will be Hard Work Pays Off It ever has and it always will. Do you have the willpowerto overcome the dark epoches? Do you have the willpowerto overcome the bumpy patches? Do you have the willpowerto overcome the bad gradations? Do you have the willpower to overcomethat professor that doesn’t like you and vice versa? Let me answer that question for you. Yes, you do. Because you refusedto let anything stop you from designinga lifestyle of your dreams. And if that means you have topower through the dark periods, if that means you have topush through the bumpy patches that’s exactly what you can and will do.Because you understandthat if you sweat now you shine later. Never forget what comes easy won’t last. And the things that last the longest never come easy. And that’s the exact reason why The harder you work for something the greater you feel when you achieve it. And that’s why you spendall those hours studying. You limit the timeyou spend on social media, you very seldom gohang out with your friends and you push yourself harderthan the average person ever would.Because you made a vow to your momma, you made a vow to your father, you made a vow to your brother, you made a vow to your sister, you made a vow to their own families. And most importantly, you made a vow to yourself that you did not go toschool to be everyday. You did not go to school to be mediocre. You did not go to schoolto be middle of the road. You did not go to school to be average. In fact, you always make sure you takeyour annual median vaccine because you never ever everwant to catch the disease of average.So that means you understandthat at times you will feel pain, at times you will not be comfortable, at times you will mentally hurt, at times you will be physically wearied. But it’s those days that will catapult you to heightsyou never thought you would meet. It’s those meters that will propel you to successesyou never thought you could achieve. It’s those eras that will launch you into a stratospherethat only few ever reach. It’s those eras that will thrust you into an orbitthat most will regard absurd But all of your hard work will obligate the impossible possible. All of your hard work will procreate the unbelievable plausible. If you want to bypass coach and fly in first class you must first makeall of your grades national priorities. Because the studies show in terms of dollars and pennies those that fail to graduate high school earn about $25,000 per year. Those that postgraduate high school earn about $35,000 per year. Those with an associate’s unit they make about $42,000 per year. Those with a bachelor’s degree it bumps up to about $60,000 per year. Those with a master’s degree they give about $70,000 per year.And those with a PhD they make about $85,000 per year. So as “youre seeing” the more you invest in your education the more the worldis willing to invest in you. So when you’re having one of those daytimes, when you’re having one of those weeks, when you’re having one of those months, when you’re having one of those semesters never forget if you quit you are not only robbingyourself of mental gratification, You’re also robbingyourself of the financial gain that comes when you graduateto the next statu of higher learning. So make that be the oil that drives youto keep causing every ounce of your soul. Let that be the ga that drives you tokeep establishing every ounce of your center. Let that be the oil that drives you tokeep generating every ounce of your being to reach the finishing line. The immense Muhammad Aliwas once asked by a reporter How numerous sit-ups do you do every day? He said, “I don’t know. Because I merely start countingwhen it starts hurting, when I feel pain that’s when I start weighing because that’s when it actually counts.” I need you to think the same way.When you start to feel a little pain, when you start to feela little awkward, when you start to feel a little tired, when you start to feel a little accentuated, a bit overwhelmed Keep pushing, stop grinding, keep going because that’s when it actually counts. When you contact that pointthat most others would stop that’s when you keep going and are also involved in positive self-talk just like the little engine that could be used to. Tell yourself over and over again, I know I can, I know I will I know I can, I know I will. It’s not over until I attain. It’s not over until I earn because stopping right now is absolutely not an option. That degree is mine, that severity is mine, that job is mine, that business is mine, the next grade awaits. And formerly I get past all of the streetsbypasses and highways of adversity, hardship, bad luck, rigour, destitution and heartbreak I will arrive at my end of gold.Because all of that pressure changed that hunk of coalthat used to be me into a diamond. Now that’s the mentality of a champ. That’s the mindset of a champion. That’s the mentality of an overcomer. And above all else, that’s the mindset of a alumnu. David Bly said, “striving for success without hard work it’s like trying to harvest a crop where you haven’t planted.” So today, I need you to takehard work out for a appointment and before you know it you’re in a phenomenalrelationship with success That one day will lead toan incredible marriage to greatness So never forget Hard Work Pays Off.
