Borrowed laurels seldom last.
Have you decided not to be chided away from your dream no matter how hard it is or how hot the steam? Can your devotion endure the motions and mishaps that comes from walking the path? After the excitement fades are you still willing to wade beyond yourself into depths you've never been? If so, success will eventually call you "friend." Until then, reject fear and embrace cheer because each act brings you near to what will ultimately endear your heart and endow your soul with a satiety you can hardly hold.
