I couldn’t wait for success, so I went ahead without it.

Are you waiting for success to knock on your door? Sorry to disappoint you, but things don’t work that way. If you want success to walk along with you, you must not wait for it, on the contrary, you must keep going until you encounter it, then try harder not to let it get away. Success does not fall from the sky, but it is of course a gift you receive in appreciation to your hard work and dedication.
