This is why I don’t believe that the quote “Good things will come to those who wait” is 100% true.
Back in 2004, a fire started in my family’s factory. It burnt everything and even left us in debt for 100.000 USD.
After the fire, we all have to move on from the past. I established my design and built the company. Things didn’t go well since I got no job or projects to do, why you might be asking? It is because at that time I believed in the quote “Good things will come to those who wait”. Well, like what the quote says I waited. This is where things went wrong it’s because even if I waited good things won’t come because people didn’t know me. I did nothing about the market, I didn’t introduce myself to the market.
At this point, my eyes were opened and I realize that I interpreted the quote in the wrong way, I took it too literally. Then I realize that this quote is a good quote as long as you interpret it in the right way, effort is always needed the more accurate quote should be “Good things will come to those who put in the effort”. I started taking actions such as introducing myself to the market, doing small exhibitions, and from the exhibitions, I started building relations. Finally, the path is starting to open, it gave me more jobs and projects.
