Push yourself beyond your limit
Either you can live your life in your way or just survive, there are only two ways of living and you have to choose one. Surviving is quite easy you have to just take care of your basic needs like eating and shelter by just following what others are doing but for living your life you have to take a strong decision and choose your own way which will be difficult and risky. Most of the people in today’s world chose the first way of surviving which is an easy one as they do not dare to take a strong decision and work hard to their full potential. Fear of failure is also a big reason why most people chose the simple way like others, Choosing a small aim to get success easily is what everyone is doing today but they don’t notice that this is only shrinking their potential. “Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.” a quote by Oscar Wilde which is clearly said that taking the safe route in doing something is dull and predictable and everyone is doing this, do something different in excess which you want to do besides of thinking about what others think about it, it is your life they are merely a flock of sheep you have to walk alone in higher altitude.
"There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountaintop of our desires." Very famous line by Nelson Mandela which signifies that success is not an easy task it needs very tough works and sacrifices so either prepare yourself for this or just merely manage to survive.
Don't choose a safe route
Take a risk, work hard and that will build you stronger and stronger. Don't choose a safe route which is predictable and shrank, broad the scope and imagination of your mind. That may be difficult everyone around you will force you to don’t do that but it is on you if you believe yourself and have faith in you then you will choose the way you want to choose despite others advice.
“An important decision I made was to resist playing the Blame Game. The day I realised that I am in charge of how I will approach problems in my life, that things will turn out better or worse because of me and nobody else, that was the day I knew I would be a happier and healthier person. And that was the day I knew I could truly build a life that matters.” well said by Steve Goodier.
Love what you do
Always love yourself, your decision and your work and that is the best motivation that you need within yourself. Most people choose an ideal and follow them and their path somewhat, it is a smart move but takes care of choosing your ideal because that will decide your future and your thinking, it is one decision that looks minute but you have to very careful for that, and the best Ideal for you is You. Steve Jobs the great person once said that “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.”
