Don't let anyone fool you. Most people see the results of the hard work but don't get to see the process. And if I am honest, most people, never really go through the process to become someone, as they set out to achieve some thing. These are two different processes.
Success is a tricky thing. It attracts the good and the bad. This is why you can't be afraid of the process. The fire purifies, readying you to withstand it all. You may make it, but are you built to last?
