It goes all the way back to the fourteenth century, according to Word Detective. Back then, building practices called for a row of paintings or sculptures on each floor which told a story.
Hence, the levels of a building came to be called “stories”. It’s the reason why many churches have stained glass windows.
BIGG success is reached one floor at a time. You won’t find an express elevator that takes you to the top. There’s not even an escalator.
You have to personally climb the stairway to BIGG success. You do it one level at a time. You get to the next level by taking the next step.
It’s not easy. Matter of fact, that’s too much of an understatement – it’s downright hard at times.
You’ll get tired. You’ll feel like you’ve used your last ounce of energy. You’ll get discouraged.
But you won’t be defeated. Somehow, some way, you’ll keep climbing. Step after step. Floor after floor. Until you reach your dream.
But here’s some consolation for the journey: You’re creating a story, your story. You’re not a one-hit wonder. Just like the buildings of our ancestors – you’re developing a series of stories, one layered on top of the next.
Question: What’s a story without conflict? Answer: Boring!
BIGG success is life on your own terms. It’s a destination, a point you’re trying to reach, a dream you want to live out for real.
But success is a journey too. It’s a journey that prepares you, each step of the way, for your ultimate success.
You will face strife on the journey to success. The strife will make you stronger. It will prepare you for the BIGG things ahead for you.
So keep climbing. Keep building. Press on. So you’ll live happily ever after. It leads to BIGG success! The end.
