Despite your best endeavours, you may never reach the pinnacle.

You may never become the best in the world.

Your work may escape the attention of others.

The impact and influence of your life may not quite meet your expectations.

But isn’t it fun trying?

Isn’t it worth it to give it a go?

Wouldn’t your life be more interesting?

Is it possible that the detours you take and lessons you learn along the way make it worth the effort?

I really hope that your dreams come true and your goals are realised, but I can’t guarantee that this will happen.

So I also hope that at the very least, you can say that you gave it your best shot.
