We need to lift our standards up. To be able to produce the best possible work should be our motto. That is if achieving success is what you are striving for. In the end, it is our work or the value that we provide to others that will determine our result. Yes some might say that nothing else matters except who you know and how much money you have. True, that sort of thing has existed throughout the ages. But things are slightly different now. The playing field has sort of leveled thanks to the creation of new technologies and the global shift of mindset to provide chances and enable dreams to matter. Therefore there is no excuse really for you to have it all. You just need to put in the work to be the best at what you do. And that can be achieved regardless of your circumstances. If you have any doubts about that, look at the countless success stories that have proven so.
