We make a statement whenever we are waiting and working toward our dreams, especially when it seems as if it will never happen. Yet that’s when we must truly play the part of a Captain lest we be crushed by the stuff that life brings. Doing so is especially hard when others sing because Fortune rings their bell and screams through the keyhole that “ALL IS WELL!” We meanwhile must learn to smile and to rejoice in their good fortune. Otherwise regarding our requests Fortune will fail to hearken. That’s why hating on others makes no sense. It’s also why waiting on our dreams makes us dense if we work while we wait. If so, we will reach the point where things tip and life takes a turn for the better despite the bad weather we endured. Meanwhile we must be diligent daily and strive to endure. That’s what those who made it did. Like us, they too endured a season when they were hid from view. Remember this when you are tempted to quit. Success eludes if you split, colloquially speaking.
