One can jump without stepping on a springboard but it provides a favourable take off for the jumper.
Many people fail in life because they look down and ignore their springboard to seek the ultimate.
Your current situation might not be the best, do not underestimate it, work and prepare yourself for better and greater things.
Your current position might be degrading, work your heart out, it will usher you to a prestigious one.
Your current job might not be much rewarding, work diligently, it will open more rewarding opportunities for you.
Springboards are unattractive but necessary pushers to greatness.
Springboard is not your final destination, it is a transition point to your final destination.
You cannot always rise directly to your goal and destination, never ignore unpleasant but necessary springboards in your life.
