What are you doing to improve? People who achieve their goals are the ones who dare to be different and to use their creativity and imagination. They also put passion into what they do, even if the road is rough, as roads usually are. To great efforts, great achievements.

Stop thinking about what you don’t want to happen and focus on what you really want. Stop thinking that you won’t be able to achieve it and visualize yourself reaching the goal … YOUR goal.

The worst mistake is not to try. Not trying out of fear, laziness, lack of confidence … or simply out of resignation. Normally we don’t know our talents and it’s more comfortable to think that we can’t. Always with excuses, waiting for something to happen to begin with: when I get such position, when I get married, when I do my masters, when I separate, when I lose weight … without realizing that a life without purpose has no value. Let’s not stagnate in mediocrity, as it will make us make many mistakes. Ask yourself what you live for. If something that makes your heart beat doesn’t come to mind, it’s time to question yourself and get to work on the answer, if you really want to grow.

Even if you do not get immediate results, DON’T GIVE UP. When we go through life with firm and sure steps towards the goal, each step brings us closer and fills us with energy to continue. If you want to walk taking a step forward and two steps back, you’ll never get there. Take advantage of all the opportunities that can take you to where only you know you want to reach. Every day we have a new opportunity to start walking again on the right path.

Moving forward involves worth taking risks, and even if it hurts, we must achieve personal success which gives us internal reward difficult to describe. Do the best you can, and you’ll learn every day to do better. It’s worth asking and for help to make the most of every opportunity. Everything that you promise, fulfill it. You cannot cheat yourself.

We must find the balance we need to live the life we ​​want. Stop worrying about what other people do better than you and concentrate on you, on your abilities and learn to recognize and value them to empower them. Don’t risk being on the verge of death to understand the meaning of life and realize how brief it is and how you’ve wasted it. Remember that you’re the only one responsible for your life, nobody else, and you can’t stop doing what you really want to enjoy it to the fullest.
