ROME is the capital of Italy; popularly known as “capital of world” ‘Eternal city” ‘City of seven hills”. In the founding myth of Rome, Romulus marked the outline of the city by a channel. Drawing this outline could have been done in a single day. Building the city, and expanding it to the metropolis it took a lot longer. Even though the idea of Rome was defended from day one, the reality of Rome took time to get into place; this city did not come into existence all of a sudden. It was founded in 753 B.C. Then Emperor Augustus and his successors added to its glory and grandeur till, at last, after several centuries, it became the world’s most magnificent city. Thus origin of proverb “ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY”.
I am excited to write more about this phrase / proverb “ ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY” because it inspires us to constantly pursue our goals; work more harder; climb every small step of success ladder to reach much higher than sky to see yourself at “top of the world”. It is about patience, determination, commitment and passion to work hard without expecting results and success to come immediately and this will surely give you success which will be known to whole world.
History says itself and gives us lots of examples whether it is magnificent architecture, monument or people himself. It took thousands of skillful laborers and decades to build Taj Mahal; fame as No 1 rank in Seven Wonders of World. 8 year old boy started working at petrol pump worked hard for decades to become entrepreneur of No 1 petroleum refinery industries known as Reliance Industries. Yes, you guessed it right; I am talking about Dhirubhai Ambani who has created his vast empire of Reliance Industries in the field of petroleum, cloth, etc. This all did not happen in a single day or fortnight. It took decades of hardship to achieve their ambition, their dream they have seen.
We often think that we have work hard and we should get immediate results and deserve for success. We.
