Once when songwriter/singer Paul Simon was being interviewed he said, "Between the ages of 15 and 22, I had made only one very minor hit, so I expected everything to be a flop. I was utterly amazed that 'The Sound of Silence' was a big hit."
Have you ever had success when and/or where you least expected it? If you answered no, you are probably not being totally honest with yourself.
Here's another quote from yours truly when he finished a big project (this one has actually been said several times), "...that didn't take long..." The memory is a wonderful thing. It allows women to forget much of the pain of child birth and much of the pain of development.
What's the point? Expect brilliance, but don't be surprised when it comes from somewhere you least expect it. Also, the pain of today creates the gratification of tomorrow.
Keep putting one foot in front of the other and you'll get to your destination. Just remember, when you reach your destination, there's another destination you'll need to reach. It never ends!
