A few months later I won an award forrepparttar 131834 work that I did on my website and to top it all – a number 1 (# 1 ) listing in Google , Yahoo and AOL.This was accomplished by overcoming many obstacles alongrepparttar 131835 way most of which I just ran right over.

This experience taught me a lot about life and how I should follow my dreams through to end.So my friends in whatever you are striving for at this very moment and you are not seeing any results , push on.Because once you do so success WILL come , it's just a matter of time.Keep on hanging in there , my brothers and sisters and I will see you atrepparttar 131836 bank.Remember , life always goes in favor ofrepparttar 131837 brave and action taker.What action are you taking today to achieve your goals ?
