The film industry is full of examples, where people who have made it big, had to struggle a lot before they got their first break. Here’s a nice article that talks about the importance of holding on, and being true to yourself. Just because good things are happening to your peer, doesn’t mean success will keep on eluding you.
Kenya is 2 hrs ahead of Nigeria, but it does not mean that Nigeria is slow, or that Kenya is fast. Both countries are working based on their own “Time Zone.”
Some one is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ 10 yrs before having a child, there is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job; and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately !
Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years.
Everyone works based on their ‘Time Zone’,
People can have things worked out only according to their pace.
Work in your “time zone”.
Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you.
May be some might “seem” behind you.
Don’t envy them or mock them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’
You are in yours!
Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late … You are not early … you’re very much On time!
