You are a work in progress. We all are.
Which means you get there a little at a time. Not all at once.
Others may get there ahead of you. And it’s not because you’re not good enough, or not trying hard enough. It just may not quite be your time.
The others that get there before you may actually not be ready to be there. They may have taken a few shortcuts, stepped over others, in order to get there. And as a result, they won’t be successful there because they aren’t truly ready.
You’ve probably heard the saying that “slow and steady wins the race.” Think about that.
You’ll get there as long as you kept trying. One step at a time. Patience. Another step.
A work in progress isn’t finished in a shortened time span. It takes the time it takes.
Hurrying something along only makes it take longer to complete.
And when that work in progress is completed, you’ll realize it was as all worth it.
