Persevere In Everything You Do...

Time flies so fast, now the first week in 2010 has passed. I hope all of you have joy and pleasant experiences in this first week of 2010. :D

Yesterday I met another friend of mine who I've never met for a long time. We talked quite a lot, and to my surprise, he has view or way of thinking that is unthinkable for me at first. He said that he always hate God for giving him such a hard life, and how he never get a chance to do something big, something grand and great so he can be rich and famous. To me his way of thinking is quite unique, or alien, but after I'm thinking for a little bit, analyzing my past experiences with people, I realize that maybe there are a lot of people out there who have the same view with this friend of mine. So after hearing on what he said, I talked and discussed my view with him, because I think that his view is not giving good influence for his life and I hope I can convince him to change or at least alter his view, for his own good. I also hope my view also can help other people especially the readers of my blog who have the same view with this friend of mine.

For me this kind of view is kind of unacceptable. First he should not blaming God for what happen in his life or not giving him chance, because from what I see, this kind way of thinking will get him nowhere on the contrary it will only make him too obsessed, focused on looking easy way to get rich and famous, so he becomes reluctant to do hard job or real job and doesn't do whole heartedly what he is supposed to do. This is not right, from what I think, rather than wasting his time waiting or waiting for chances to come to him, it's better for him to do his job or his obligation whole heartedly, because this way he made a progress in his life and who knows in the way of this he find the chance that he is looking for. Because the bible said :

Matthew 25
21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'

So don't ever give up, just like the bible had said, we need to persevere in everything we do, even though it's only small or minor things, and if we persevere we can be given bigger thing to do. You can see that every success person especially people who are in the richest men list in the world, always persevere in what they did, it's nothing sort of they got the money from lottery or nowhere. You can see Warren Buffet who work and trade since very early age, or Bill Gates who persevere in researching what we called today as computers and still countless examples of great person who persevere in what they do so they become great person. Also I want to give you another quote from the bible that is very important for you to think.

Matthew 25
26"His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
28" 'Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. 29For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 30And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

So, now it's up to you to decide on what you going to do, whether waiting for chance to come to yourself, dwell in your dream to get rich and famous, or get up, do something and persevere in whatever you do.
