Anything that you do in life you have to do it with the best of your ability. There are no such things as shortcuts. If you look for shortcuts in life who do you think you are fooling? When you try your very best at everything that you do there is no such thing as failure. You may have to try harder and work longer than the next person and that is ok because there is a good reason for it. The reason is very simple and it just means that God thinks you are very special too and he wants you to become the very best of who you are so he wants you to take longer learning the many lessons of life. Be original, be true, become the very best of you.
