All great achievements require time – Maya Angelou Quote

quote by maya angelou

Maya Angelou said, “All great achievements require time.”

It doesn’t matter what you’re trying to achieve, if it’s worthwhile and potentially life changing it’s going to take time.

Try not to get disillusioned by setbacks, and where they do arise, overcome them, and use the experience to strengthen your resolve.

Be focused on your goal but keep in mind that you still have your life to live – don’t forget to live it.

All great achievements take time, but don’t give up in a moment of weakness, you may be only moments away from achieving your dream.

The last four years of my time at home looking after the children have been fantastic but they’ve also been incredibly tough. I’ve set myself some amazing challenges and I’m getting close to achieving some of them.

There have been days and even weeks where I’ve felt like giving up but something within has pushed me to carry on. I’m glad I found the determination that has brought me this far, but I also know that I still have some way to go to achieve my biggest, boldest and most fulfilling dreams.

I love this quote from Maya, it’s somehow comforting! 🙂

Thanks, good timing Dave, I was feeling a little down in the dumps today with all that is pressing on me lately.
Appreciate the positive reenforcement.

Glad you enjoyed it!
Life certainly can feel that way sometimes for me too. And just like you, I look for the positives.
Have an amazing day and thanks for the keeping me company here 🙂
