My mother has given me so much but one thing that rings in my ear. I’d say, “Mom, I’m working so hard but it’s not happening,” and she would respond, “Then you’re not working hard enough.” She would tell me not to settle for mediocrity — always do your best. When you do good things, good things will happen.
