Set High Goals in Careers
Tall structures requires deeper foundations.
Without investing adequate commitment, time, energy and money one can never get to any worthwhile career goal.
Focus all your energy and concentration now to take off and later you will find you are flying relatively easy. In this world of great competition, if you did not get what you loved, learn to fall in love with what you get.
