“I will prepare myself, and perhaps my time will come.” Abraham Lincoln
If your time does come and you did not prepare yourself, inability and hypocrisy are soon revealed. Perhaps the saddest occasion is a man standing on the precipice of his destiny facing the wrong way.
Certainly, history has forgotten many prepared individuals who never enjoyed their moment in the sun. It begs the question, where they as prepared as they needed to be? They got so close but never breached the threshold.
Did they give up the day before a breakthrough? We will never know.
But what if?
Keep trying. Keep getting better. Your time will come.
