Not every person can achieve success in life. Success is reserved for those individuals who are alive with enthusiasm. Positive results accrue to those who face difficulties bravely, clear hurdles forcefully, and never demur from difficult challenges. Those individuals who are victorious are invariably alive with enthusiasm. Success rains down upon the fields of those who face all difficulties bravely and never try to attempt to elude the challenges that may barricade the road to success. The thing which makes one intrepid is ENTHUSIASM. The attribute which develops one’s ability to confront problems and challenges courageously is ENTHUSIASM.

A myriad of folks are inclined to relinquish triumph when they encounter gigantic tasks. But those individuals who continuously grasp for their objective are never forsaken. Despite the fact that they inevitably encounter numerous barriers of all kinds, they stick to their work. They wholeheartedly embrace the tasks which will bring them to that day when their dreams will be realized.

During the founding of Pakistan, Quid-e-Azam encountered seemingly insurmountable troubles. He bore colossal agonies. But it was his ambition which made him courageous, and drove him to achieve his goal of a self-governing country. Benazir Bhutto had a dream of bestowing the blessings of true democracy upon her beloved Pakistan. In pursuing this dream, she lost her life; but she did not let fear overwhelm her or lead her to despair. It was her enthusiasm which gave her the pluck to forge onward.

Success is not like taking candy from a baby. To attain it, one has to deal with immense trials, hardships and obstacles. These barriers to success are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit grows stronger by engaging adversity. Nelson Mandela is a case in point. He fought against racial discrimination and repeatedly encountered unimaginable obstacles on his pathway to success. He ultimately prevailed and proved that no white man is innately superior to a black man. The measure of a man lies in his capabilities and the fortitude of his character. It is these attributes alone which distinguishes one man from another; skin color is irrelevant.

To achieve success, one must be bold enough to put up with inconveniences. Most of our obstacles would melt away if, we would only make up our minds to walk boldly through them, instead of cowering before them. One should consider problems as road signs leading to success, not as stop signs which prevent us from achieving success. We are all aware that we must have darkness before the coming of the dawn. All you need is action; action with enthusiasm. Some people dream of success, while others cannot rest until they achieve it. Again it is our enthusiastic burning desire to succeed and a resolute willingness to endure, which spur us onward toward action, and ultimately success.

When your will to succeed is great, difficulties will inevitably prostrate themselves along your path. You should always brace yourself to face difficulties. With perseverance you will overcome all impediments. A strong will can surmount all obstacles. God never confronts us with more than we can handle. Always keep in mind that what you do today is important. After all, you are exchanging a day of your life for it. If you pursue your dreams with enthusiasm, in due course, success will be yours.
