Its OK to be a tortoise in a world of racing hares. You soak up more knowledge of your surroundings when you slow down your pace. And it wont keep you from reaching the finish line either, because you'll be the smart one avoiding all the hazards and obstacles. All the hares are bound to hit trees, fall in ditches, and take too long naps.
So if you feel like everyone around you is reaching their dreams and goals faster than you are its quite ALRIGHT. Just keep your eyes open on the way to victory for the little things that are dangerous to your journey and things that will help you. People who get success too early never stopped to learn the basics of how to keep their success. Evidently they crash and burn.
When you receive a blessing too fast or in the wrong time, it can pose as a curse.
Just felt like sharing that wisdom.
