Sustained efforts and labour finally yield the fruitsMany people do efforts and hard work in this world but many times, due to cut throat competition everywhere, do not get recognition or achievement in their lives and sometimes get discouraged and demotivated by that. Yes, it happens often and is a natural reaction of our sentiments to the adverse conditions. Still the old formula of sustained efforts holds good because we do not know when that turning point or opportunity will come in our lives after which success would become a routine affair. Few days back I was reading about a science fiction writer who was writing during the great science fiction period from the year 1930 to 1960, but in the beginning, for a long time, none of his writings were approved by one of the leading magazine editor at that time. There were fewer opportunities then to publish one's work elsewhere so the writer kept on improving and trying and sending his stories there only and one day the editor informed him that his work had come to the acceptable level. Then the writer started to get his stories published regularly. I strongly feel that in spite of all hardships and problems encountered in the journey of our lives, the sustained and continuous efforts still hold merit. What do you think about that?
