Stop aspire to make a living, start to aspire to make a difference in life. Everything you dream of, you can get it, only if you invest your energy into it. So work hard to get it, claim it! When you get there, and you will achieve it, reach back and pull somebody else up. Just because you are doing many more than others, doesn’t mean that you are getting a lot more done. Don’t confuse movement with growth.
You don’t start because of what you are missing something. You don’t start because you don’t realize yet that the fruit of everything great in your life begins with a huge challenge. There is nothing easy in life, worthwhile in life. Trust me, there is not gonna be easy, it is not going to fall on your lap, and it’s not going to be something simple. Remember it is going to be super difficult. There is only one way you are going to get to the other side of this journey is that you have got to suffer and struggle a lot. To grow, you must suffer. Most of our generation quit the second after they get talked to. Honestly for me is so easy to be great nowadays, because most people are weak, most people want a quick result, most people only think that they work hard to achieve their life goals, most of them quit before putting any efforts, and fight for it. That is the softened generation. So if you have any mental toughness, if you are stubborn enough and you have any ability of self-discipline, the ability to ‘not want to do it but still continuously do it’ you will win. Most people have a wrong understanding of hard work.
Tell me, what do you do on those days when you are not feeling good, not feeling empowered? Those days when you are tired and just sick of the grind. Do you want me to tell you what am I doing on those days? I do anyway; I get it done, I’m going through the motions, I struggle but still doing it. At that moment when I don’t want to work out, I work out. When I really don’t want to be on a project? I am on the project. When I struggle to get out of my bed? Yes! I get out of my bed! When you are able to get through doing things that you hate to do, on the other side is waiting for you only something incredible, something great. So keep your dreams, but have life goals. Daily, monthly, yearly life goals. Don’t forget that to achieve these goals you have to apply self-discipline and persistence. To set and accomplish your life goals, you must involve consistency every single day. Not just today, not to start from tomorrow. You have to work at it every day continuously. Hard work works! Hard working is what victorious people do. Stop negative your little voices from holding you back. Many people nowadays assume that one day they are going to get somewhere, that they are going to achieve something great, just thinking that somehow they will get better. Let me tell you something about an assumption – an assumption is a great disappointment in life. How to overcome this? Well, you can always disagree, but take yourself out of the comfort zone, do things you hate to do, be uncomfortable every day of your life, struggle more, work harder, be a doer! Face it, challenge yourself. So the things we run from, we run off from the truth – the only way to become successful is going towards the truth. The painful situations are going to change us. It is okay to struggle, and sometimes somebody might disagree with you, might call badly, it’s okay. Let them call you that, let them do that. They are not own your life. How are you going to control it? Become more a human being, thicken your skin, don’t be afraid to face it. Once you overcome it, you have done your homework. Please remember, the bigger your dreams are, the more people going to try to stop you, they going to laugh at you, making fun of you. But if you are striving for something important, if you are trying to make a real change, if there is something that you absolutely believe in, and you are putting the efforts to make it happen, you have to understand that you are going to fighting against something. Others are going to push you back against you, and the only helpful tool will be your ability to stick to your vision. Having a vital mission already puts you in an incredibly unique group of people, and being able to see something that others can’t see. That is the primary role of visionary. It is simply to understand the world that others don’t even know that exists. Let them fall in line; it’s their choice. As Mark Twain said ‘‘keep away from those who belittle your ambitions, small people always do that. But the really great ones, they make you believe that you too can become great” and those people you want to stick to, you want to surrender with people who believe in you. You want to be with people who even can’t see or understand your ideas, but still, they see you and believe that it’s going to work. You can make a significant change. If you are not willing to fight for it, you might as well sit down now. Be one of the few that stands up!
