  1. Absolutely true. We need more stories of adults who struggled before reaching their goals, because that is reality. If progress isn’t made instantly, more effort is needed. Sometimes failure means choosing a different path, too. (For example, not making a team or getting the job). But teens (and adults) need to learn to persevere. You’re right: The world prefers instant gratification today.

  2. Beautifully stated. Slow and steady wins the race, but a difficult concept to reflect upon and apply to our lives, especially for teenagers. If we aren’t instantly gratified we often give up without realizing our inner most talents only need to be nurtured and the proud fact of having the courage to try often supersedes the ultimate goal. Success doesn’t just happen even though it may appear easier for some.
