If the path you took doesn’t take you to your goal, change the route or change the strategy. Set realistic goals and be persistent.

People who achieve their goals are the ones who dare to be different and to use their creativity and imagination. Many times, we don’t know the talents that live within us and rather think that we can’t. Always with excuses, waiting for something to happen to begin with: when I get a job, when I get married, after I do my masters, after divorce, when I lose weight … and we don’t realize that a life with no purpose has no value.

Ask yourself every day, what am I alive for? Even if you don’t get results and only problems are added, DON’T SURRENDER. Learn to fly and take advantage of all the opportunities that can take you where only you know.

Great achievements require great risks, but they’re definitely worth taking. Learn to live. You don’t need to be on the verge of death to understand the meaning of life and realize how brief it is.
