Bigger the change, longer it takes to settle....

History is full of stories about monuments and how long it took to build them. Great Pyramids, Taj Mahal, Eifel Tower, Great Wall of China.... the list is long – it took years to make them and now they stand tall remind us of time when not many means were available to construct something but some people had vision and patience of making their dreams a reality. They knew that the generations later, their work will still be admired.

The point that I am trying to make here is that the larger the dream, the longer it takes. And the endurance becomes critical for our work Maybe, as you read this blog today, you are feeling frustrated over the fact that your richly imagined future is not your current reality, yet!

If it is so, I encourage you to keep in mind that the most excellent things take a little longer.

Don’t forget - if achieving bold and beautiful things were so easy - then everyone would be doing it.

Very encouraging words. Thank you. said...

This is a very inspirational message. Deep down most of us understand this universal truth - that things worth doing, take time do accomplish. Yet we forget this as we trudge through our daily lives, anxious to accomplish all the tasks, big and small, that demand our attention. We have a vision of being greater or more successful than we are today. But sometimes we get discouraged by the amount of time and effort it would take to make our vision of ourselves come true. Thanks for your words ... they encourage us to forge ahead and make our dreams come true, no matter how long it will take us.
