let no one promise you a smooth ride OR guarantee you a shortcut. Real success does not happen overnight.

Let no one mock your sweat. The bumps and the bends are part of the process.

Don't make undue comparison of yourself with someone else. Don't race ahead of God, learn to be patient with your destiny.

And when there is no one to cheer you up, be your own cheerleader!
