Inch by inch

Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, and don’t be afraid.
Don’t be ashamed of your humble place.

There is merit in waking up and being needed. There is merit in constancy, bravery, and effort. Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, and don’t be afraid that it is possible to achieve goals.

It is true, some goals are more difficult than others but sooner or later you can reach them. It is necessary to work, and never give up and little by little it will be achieved.

When the wind disturbs the sleeping lake it makes it ripple pure and fresh. It moves the branches until they make music.

Like the little bee that is busy collecting honey all day long. It works hard to store it well.

Work while you work and play while you play. That’s the way to be cheerful and happy.

Never forget that whatever you do must be with effort. Half – heartedly actions are never done well or complete.

I find it hard to believe that one who is idle and full of plenty enjoys a loaf of bread as opposed to those who strive to achieve their goals. People are never so blissful as when they are busy.

Think of the acorn sinking into the moss. Little by little, each day it grows, and little by little it drinks in the dew.

While downward it sends a thread-like root, upward, a tiny shoot. Day after day, and year after year, little by little the leaves appear. All branches spread far and wide until the mighty oak is the pride of the forest.

Moment by moment, and day by day, inch by inch, there is no stopping. There is a joy to be found in work, there is delight to be had from pleasure and rest.

I do not know many things, I am not a wise woman. I have not seen all the wonders, but I have learned to work hard for what I have.

I know that when work harasses you and drives you crazy, there is not enough patience, and everything becomes more complicated than imagined.

So, the answer is to do everything little by little, inch binch, one step at a time. You don’t need to see the whole thing to get it done. One task, one moment, and then the next. That’s how the goal is achieved.

Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, and don’t be afraid.

I believe that the key to success is neither silver nor gold, copper or steel. I believe that the key to success is a longing to try. A yearning to learn, an eagerness to seek something.

It seems that young people breathe desire, passion, and roaring fire. Young people rise like a rocket in the sky. Young people fearlessly dare.

Seemingly the elders pronounce truth, ruling the fires of youth. The elders are firm on the ground. Seemingly the elders are brave and wise. They test their wings before they fly.

Gradually time passes and the young will be older. Hardworking brains and hands, hot sweaty foreheads and heavy chests.

The rush of the times affects us so much, we crowd and press. It is not clear why, but we push each other back, as we go along, and do not emphasize the value of work, of constancy, of never giving up.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes do, when the road you are traveling seems all uphill, when funds are scarce and debts are high, it is necessary to rest, take a deep breath and never give up.

Life is strange with its twists and turns. Don’t give up even if the pace seems slow. There may be success in the next attempt. So work, work, work, work, work, work, work and don’t be afraid.

Success is failure in reverse. So stay in the fight when you’re most beaten down. It is when things seem worst that you must not give up.
