STOP REPLAYING THE OLD VICTORIES, MOVE ON; THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
Have you gotten to that climax when you think what you have achieved is enough to make headlines for a lifetime?
Do you think you are all that you could have been?
Does the memories of the applauds of men after your milestones make you take a break from engaging the other efforts for new horizons lately?
Have you imagined that the heights you have attained none of your equals can get close to it and you decided to take a break?
Do you think your academic excellence has no rival and no one can contest it?
These thoughts displace a man from the standout of success to failure. You are not having those milestones to stand still but to continually stand out. Success can be replicated if a man continually remains diligent, consistent and committed to what he does and has been doing to achieve a goal.
My favorite athlete of all time remains Christiano Ronaldo. He made a statement at an interview that stunned me. He was asked: ‘which goal is your favorite goal in your career ‘. He responded by saying “it’s my next goal”. He emphasized that his next goal could be better than all his goals in his career and as a way of not allowing his past victories to stop his progress, he stopped watching the replays of his goals in previous matches.
Many get to the top of the mountain to admire sceneries, while real men look for new mountains to climb. Stop spending time admiring past pictures of how many applauded you for an achievement, you can use those time to imagine the ovation that awaits you when you progress further in that conquest.
As good as I appreciate everyone celebrating me with words about my progress, I resoluted over time that the best way to appreciate these people is to do beyond they said I have achieved.
