So who cares if next person is smarter than you?
Between two people on an otherwise even keel, with same chance for success, tie-breaker trait is willingness to do what it takes to get where they want to go. And that person is more likely to keep their eyes open for that chance to shine.
Nothing you ever learn from me or anyone else is magic- if I had a magic wand that would *poof* bring everyone success and instill principles it takes to maintain it. I'd do it. (At least then someone else could go to movies with me on Wednesday mornings!)
I'm not done with my journey to success yet. But looking at where I started and where I am now, every pain I had to go through to get here, every moment I had of feeling that I couldn't possibly go on, every tear that was shed, was worth it. It all shaped me into who I am, and makes me grateful every day for every single bit of accomplishment I have made, no matter how small.
Instead of worrying about what world owes me, I focus on what world has paid me.
In return for hard work, I received dividend of results. For my optimism, I got ability to change my own universe through power of thought and positive, well-timed action. In exchange for obeying laws of attraction, I have more blessings in my life than I could have ever imagined.
We are not so much owed by world, as we are indebted to its gifts, such as ability to give. From tiny seeds of intention we plant, we are paid continuously. Not only does planted tree spout, it bears fruit and flowers that we can enjoy over and over - so long as we keep our roots strong, remaining grateful for both rain and sunshine.
