“Success is not built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustration. Sometimes it’s built on catastrophe.”
More often than not I think that success only feels like true success when you’ve worked for it, when you’ve been through hell for it and especially when it hasn’t come easily. This year’s results season – both at my university and for those taking a-levels- reminded me of this quote. I know certainly for me, success feels even better knowing that I really worked for it. For other people, who were not quite as successful as they’d hoped, that could be a foundation to build upon.
