I remember a time when I'd gotten tired of trying to succeed. Seemed the harder I tried, the further away from it I became. So, I decided to stop trying and then it happened... it was nothing more than a freak accident, but someone discovered that I'm actually good and flapping my gums and told me so.
It wasn't until I began speaking that I found my path to success. It wasn't something I wanted to do. It was something that wanted me to do it. Find your own path to success, but if you don't then it'll find you. Just have a little faith in the strange happenings around you.
