Success does not come from the Gods.

Success is made. Sweat. Tears. Hard work. Time. Effort. Energy. Perspiration. Relationships. 

Madonna is completing her 10th worldwide tour and spent 3 hours rehearsing for her 81st show of 82 shows yesterday.

Success although looks effortless at the time is the result of hard work, across many hours - weeks - months - years - decades whilst expending a ton of energy and effort to hone a craft. 

Don't forget relationships. Madonna's relationships with her manager, promoters, staff, dancers, designers and musicians allows her to utilise her gift to potentially change and shape our world.

Success not from the Gods - but because of hard work and a lot of perspiration.
