Those words POPPED OUT of the page as I was re-reading Dr. Stephen R. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
Dr. Covey is talking about focusing on building the foundations first for your permanent success to THRIVE on and how lasting success does not happen over night, and that we should work at it [success] until we become it.
"You ATTRACT success by the person you become." Mr. Shoaff.
To drive this universal success message even deeper, Dr. Covey writes:
"Did you ever consider how ridiculous it would be to try to cram on a farm - to forget to plant in the spring, play all summer and then cram in the fall to bring in the harvest?
The farm is a natural system.
The price must be paid and the process followed.
You always reap what you sow; there is no shortcut."
- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
