Encourage yourself to be successful. In case you aren’t aware, you and only you can determine how successful you become in this life. If you don’t work hard to become successful, I doubt if God can even help you. God blesses the work of your hands. So, if the work of your hands is resting, I wonder how God is going to bless that. If you ever want to have the finer things in life, you have to stop wishing and start living it. You have to encourage yourself to work extra hard towards success. I have seen people who have come from nothing to something. All they did was work hard. And yes, I believe that you have a few examples around you of people who were nothing yet became something thanks to hard work.
