Or as they say:
"Rome wasn't built in a day."
But it's not always easy to have patience.
We all have to start somewhere and usually it's at the bottom.
And then we have to claw our way up (like Rocky).
Unless of course, you're one of those people born with a "silver spoon" in your mouth.
The funny thing about building and climbing is that it can all be destroyed in a split second.
One silly mistake, one stupid word, one indiscretion, one lackadaisical moment, a turn of bad luck...or a series thereof.
It takes so much time and effort to build as we lay one brick of success upon another.
And it takes just a split second to destroy it all.
So watch-watch-watch your steps, because they can so easily turn into a rapid, spiraling, and even most deadly a fall. ;-)
