How you can achieve anything

A lot of people think you need luck to succeed. You have to be in the right place at the right time. You must have been born in a rich family home. You must have fallen in God’s grace that you can achieve anything at all.

And when these circumstances do not apply to them, they scold life, say the world is unfair and do not see the meaning of their existence. They think it is a punishment to live, do things that are not good for their health (smoking and drinking) and wait until the day they are allowed to leave the world.

But even those who are lucky enough to have had a good childhood, who are healthy and have experienced not much suffering in life do not appreciate these circumstances, waste their lives and act as if there were no tomorrow.

But what do you think now, when I tell you that the circumstances in which you grew up are not decisive, but only secondary, are at most catalysts? What if I say that the only thing that matters is a strong mindset? A mindset that reminds you day after day that you don’t live for weekends and holidays and that failure isn’t an option?

By Mindset I mean not only the mere thoughts and motivation, but also the actions that follow. For example, if you decide to make better use of your time, that you get up every morning right after waking up and don’t waste time rolling around. If you want to get fitter, that you start doing sports and are ready to sweat like an animal for more fitness.

It’s the willingness to give up partying, watching TV and chilling when you have a goal. The willingness to work out for another hour, even though you’re totally tired. The willingness to give everything.

You must always think that anything is possible if you show enough will and commitment. Anything where others think that the probability is only 1%, that you will succeed is possible if you really want to. You have to fight. Fight. Fight.

Enter the arena and show that you were born to win!

Because success is not luck, but the result of hard work.
