“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams…”- Paulo Coelho

Do not be afraid to try. Life is about trying. It is about falling down. It is about expecting. It is about creating ourselves. It is not about finding ourselves. It is about really living our lives.

If that is the case, why are so many of us not living our lives? Because we don’t want to offend other people. We want other people to love us. We want other people to be happy with us. Above all, we don’t want to fail. Yes, we don’t want to fail. But ask yourself, is it possible to walk without first learning how to stand, then walk?

“If you are not living your life, you are living your fears.”

Paulo Coelho is right when he writes, “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” “People are not living their lives because they are living their fears.” Les Brown said, Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” Remember, you are not here to live your fears; you are here to live your life. Do not let your fears stop you from pursuing your dreams. Do not let doubts stop you from living your real life. Do not let your past disappointments stop you from loving yourself. You are here to create your life. You were not created to just exist. You were created to really live your life. Whether people like it or not, you must do everything within your power to make it happen. Live your life. And live boldly!

Without Struggle, No Progress

If you are not good at facing your struggle now, you will have a difficult time facing it in the future.

You can’t live your life without encountering setbacks in your life. The purpose of a setback is to bring out the best in you. It is not to stop you, but to push forward.

You must face your setbacks. If you don’t like to face them, you must face them anyway.

Because they are there. They are not going anywhere. So if you want to be successful, if you want to do more, if you want to recreate yourself, you must do more than you are doing right now.

If you don’t face setbacks in your life, you are not playing the right ball. You are playing the wrong ball.

If you want more, do more. If you want less, do less. Whether you do more or you do less, there is no short cut to where you are going.

Setbacks are inevitable. Disappointments are inevitable. Failures are inevitable. Doubts are inevitable. It is up to you to create your own life.

One thing is clear: There is no life without obstacles, lots of them.” You know yourself. No one knows you more than you know yourself. There is no life without struggle. According to George Gurdjieff, “Without struggle, there is no progress and no result.”

Without struggle, there is no life. Without struggle, there is no pain. Without struggle, there is no success. Without struggle, there is no movement. And without struggle, there is no growth.

If you want to be successful, you must have the courage to face your struggle. You are enough to face it. Do it for yourself.
