A foundation is that which something stands or is founded upon. You could also say it is a supporting layer. In construction, a lot of time and planning is involved in making a foundation because the engineer wants to make sure that it will be able to carry the building even when there’s a storm. Infact, the bigger the building, the stronger and the deeper the foundation. The question is: Are you building your own foundation?

You see, every structure that lasts for a long while has a strong foundation. As humans, we usually do not like taking the time to build ourselves. We see it as hard work. We can take time to build a project, or to establish a business but we just don’t deem it necessary to invest and build ourselves. I will tell you why that is wrong.
Building yourself makes you ready for any challenges that will arise in the future. Everyone is aware that as long as there is life there will always be struggles; what makes the difference between someone who falls when a challenge arises and one who survives it is in the foundation. It is in how seriously he/she prepared for the future.

How to build a strong foundation:
1) Read, Read, Read: Read as many books as you can get your hands on. A book is like a well of knowledge. Do yourself good by drawing out of different wells.
2) Surround yourself with the right people
3) Be healthy! Strive to maintain good health- physically, mentally, and so on
4) Be good to everyone you meet.
That challenge you are passing through right now is part of the building process. Enjoy it, learn from it, grow from it. The process of digging and building is complex, but believe me, it’s worth it.
Remember that if the structure is going to be big, the foundation will have to be very deep and very strong. Which means that if you want to be very successful in whatever you do, you need to start equipping yourself today! Start digging your foundation!

    Nice piece.

    One more thing.. I think the reason most people don't take out time to build strong foundations is because they want it quick and now.

    This is why most people fail in various aspects of life.

    It's important to note that the more you build yourself and get seriously equiped on your field/niche/specialty, the harder it is to fall out in the periods of storms.
