Reality star and business woman Shauwn Mkhize took to Instagram to share her thoughts on what makes a successful person.
Mkhize insinuated that many people don’t see what is happening behind the scenes but are quick to judge people’s success. She said people should always look back and see where it all began.
In the video with Mkhize’s voice-over she said: “Today I was thinking that most people always pay attention to the final produce of a successful person.
“And they say things like ’I can never be like them’.
“Did I get lucky. With most that they don’t see is what they overcome.
“The struggles they went through, the rumours, the criticism, the demolition of their dignity and all of those things they go through,” she said.
In the heartfelt video she said: “They don’t think about their sleepless nights, they don’t even know that they have an empty bank account when people need to be paid at the end of the day.
“They don’t realise the effort, the strength, the passion that the person has put in and the trials and errors that they have worked through.https://8a772f2d833f41985ceb40fdc8ad496c.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html
At the end she said: “Let us not put our eyes on the end product, let us look back at where they have come from and how did they get to where they are, and how did they build what you see today,” she said.
In just three hours the video received close to 50 000 views with her fans commenting on what they feel success is made off.
“Success is not an accident, It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Well done on your achievements Shawn👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽,” said Queenpelo7.
