Together, We can make a real Difference

Your Success is a Marathon, not a Sprint!

Who doesn't like to be rich and famous? And more importantly, who doesn't like to be rich and famous fast? The honest answer is 'nobody'. Thus, seeking to build fame & fortune quickly or take a short cut to success may be an appealing prospect for you, but it can easily distract you from the nobler and less enticing life-goals that you should pursue to achieve success and lead you down the wrong path.

As a matter of fact, the people who are enjoying the fame & fortune at the highest order didn't gain it by going after that. Whether it's the Investor & Entrepreneur Mr. Ashok Pathirage (Softlogic Holdings), Mr. Sunil Amarasuriya (B. P. de Silva Holdings) or Richard Branson (Virgin Group), they have all reached where they are today by following their passions and striving for excellence. The rewards may come with the territory, but it is not what they are really after. Even the great Lord Buddha had to fulfill the 10 paramitha for aeons and had to undergo innumerable difficulties even in his last life before he attained the enlightenment.

Thus, achieving your life goals & success involves a tremendous amount of efforts - planning, good practices and positive habits - practiced daily. Unless you really love what you do, it won't be easy to reach the highest level of success. As they say, it's always a marathon not a sprint.

A sudden financial windfall or a thrust into the fame and prominence through a stroke of luck is highly unlikely to be enduring. Take, for example, a lottery winner or a local reality TV star. The may get to enjoy staggering fame & fortune but for a remarkably short while. They're like flowers that peter out no sooner than they bloom.

But, in the age of immediate gratification as characterized in instant noodles, fast-food, quick delivery that we're living through today, it'll come as little surprise if we find life success marketed as a crash course. If fame and fortune is what you're after, you may well find it to be fleeting- it could even turn out to be a bane rather than a boon.

And if you do wish for the more noble pursuits of career success or financial independence, you'll be wise to understand that those are all long-term goals. You attain them by finding work you enjoy, working hard and making sound choices.

Remember your success is a marathon not a sprint. And there're no shortcuts. Only a solid plan, passionate commitment and steely determination will take you there.
