Little by little and step by step

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for giving me your feedback. I really appreciate it.

I had chosen this quote because I had the understanding that the message is telling us that Success really needs continuous effort and commitment. Of course if an elevator is available then it may bring one up (achieving success) fast! However, in real life, that elevator (shortcuts) is not available although many (including myself) are still looking for it.

In Office, one needs an elevator to get to a particular floor fast especially a high-rise building. However, many may reached their office, but many may not have achieve their goals in their life.

Best Wishes
