Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Good things come to those who wait.  I'm sure eveyone has heard this saying at one point or another.  I was a strong believer of it until I realized this was not true.  People who wait, get nothing.  People who work, get something.  Good things come to those who work.  That's the reality and that's what the saying should really be.  Ask any successful person how exactly they obtained success.  It was not by waiting or sheer luck.  It was because they put their mind to accomplish whatever it is they decided to, worked really hard and did not stop till the job was done.  Stay in school, and be dedicated fully, that's the road to success.

Rachel, thanks for your comment.  That's a great point you've made.  I believe the answer is yes when talking about certain things.  For example, waiting to purchase a vehicle of your dreams when the moment is right and you're financially stable and able to make such a purchase vs. not caring and making an impulsive, irresponsible  decision and making such a purchase when the moment is far from right.

I definitely agree with you Marisol, there is something to be said for people who go out there at make their own opportunities, seize open doors, and don't ask for permission. Do you think that successful people are those that can find a balance between waiting and working? hmmm, I will definitely keep thinking about this over the summer.
