Behind every fortune

Behind every fortune is someone who has labored long into the
night to make it real. Behind every important discovery is a
person who often grew weary searching for it.

Behind the magnificent work of art is an artist who spent
hour after hour, month after month toiling at tasks that
were tedious and seemingly endless. Behind the beautiful,
soaring music is a composer who carefully arranged each
note, each pause, each crescendo into place.

Take heart. Your effort cannot help but pay off.

The fact is, your effort is the payoff. The fortune, the
discovery, the work of art, and the music, as grand as they
are, serve as mere tokens of the achievement.

The real achievement is in the achieving, and the real value
is in the doing. Sincere, focused effort makes your life
rich, even as you do it.

Make the effort and the reward is guaranteed. For the
biggest reward is in the doing.
