Every person wants to be successful in some way, shape or form. Either you want a better job, you want to finish a project, find a girlfriend, go on vacation, buy an expensive car, etc. Yet not many people actually achieve that. What is that? Well, I am led to believe that is because of the reasons you have behind that desire. I believe a great purpose or reason would pull you forward, wake you up in the mornings, make you not want to give up when you feel defeated. That is why whenever you want to take on anything in your life, you have to make sure that you actually want it and it’s not something someone else prescribed to you. Otherwise you will not give 100 percent effort and inedible fail. It has to be something you desire so bad that nothing matters more than achieving it. Before you take on something ask yourself if it deserves your attention or if it's something you want because of other people. This is sometimes called keeping up with the jones. There are 3 books I recommend that will help you a little bit more with this part of your life, Find Your Why by Simon Sinek, First Things First by Stephen R. Cover, and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson. I highly suggest you read them.
Anyway, I hope these resources and explanations help you all out.
Until next time!
