Every creature has a lot to overcome. I have an illness or two, etc. Sometimes life can be a struggle. For everyone. But how we see our challenges radically changes our future. Here’s how: if we just mope around feeling sorry for ourselves, what scope is there for making a positive outcome happen? I can’t see it. The only way to make positive changes is to see each challenge as a chance to grow.
How do you see your situation?
Yes, bad stuff happens. But, essentially, we are in control of our own lives. With each healthy meal we eat, with each workout that we do, we are shaping the future we want – a future that will make us happy. It is implicit, then, that success is completely subjective.
To me, success is having a healthy body and mind. I’d like to help others. I’d like to have financial freedom, and handle that with integrity.
What is success to you?
What motivates you to study?
There are, of course, lots of good reasons to study; for the end career, for the present joy of studying; to change course; to progress in your job.
It doesn’t even have to be something you share with others. If you really think about it, you’ll know what keeps you motivated.
Whatever your reason, find what fuels you and run with it.
