Achieving Career Success Is Hard Work

By Cheval John

Sometimes things might not go the way you planned it if you are trying to build your business or achieve your career goals.

Life always “gets” in the way of your plans.

The ones who are successful are the ones who understands that they must adjust to what life throws at them.

At times, they might complain about the fact that they did not get into the desired university like Harvard.

Or complain that they were not drafted by a specific team if they are a professional athlete.

However, they decided to push through their shortcomings on not achieving their desired goals and work very hard to be successful.

That is what separates the most successful people who are in the minority and the rest of the world who decide to complain and feel sorry for themselves.

Jerry Rice, who is the all-time leading receiver in the National Football League (NFL), was overlooked by many major universities because they thought he was not the right fit for their football programs.

So he ended up playing football at Mississippi Valley State University in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).

During his time in the FCS, he excelled as a wide receiver and even had a huge campaign during the 1984 season when Mississippi Valley State scored 629 points that helped them to gain national attention.

After his collegiate career was over, he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ners, where he won two Super Bowls in 1989 and 1994, respectively.

In the process of winning two Super Bowls, Mr. Rice became the all-time leading receiver in the NFL.

Mr. Rice did not allow the setback of not playing in a major collegiate football program to stop him from making it to the NFL.

Instead, he worked extremely hard to become one of the best receivers in the game of football and was able to achieve greatness as an NFL wide-receiver.

It is always important to never allow setbacks to ruin your chances of achieving your dreams as a writer, podcaster, professional athlete, etc.

If you put in the hard work and dedication, you will enjoy the richness of achieving success in your dream career.
