Hard work won't necessarily guarantee you success, but laziness will certainly guarantee you failure.

Hey you! Cheer up my friend. :-) Success is guaranteed if you make sure that you take one sure step at a time... Sure it's ok to jump at something once and a while... knowing it might be a risk... but as long as you make sure you make progress goal by goal, you will be fine! :-)
You can message me anytime... I promise I will answer if you do. :-)
Oh... BTW, I missed you too. :-)
Are you kidding? Any hard work you do now, is work you won't have to do later on. Buck up and keep your nose to the grindstone.
