What are aiming for in your life? What do you want to achieve in your life? What are your plans? What are your goals? What are your dreams? Do you know what you want out of life? Do you know what to do to make yourself a better human being? Do you know what you are really good at? Do you know where you are going? Do you have a plan to make your life a masterpiece? Do you?

If you want to make yourself happy, you must set a goal that reflects who you are. Because you can’t move to the next level if you don’t know where you are going. Life is about growth. If you want to grow, you must know where you are, what you can do, where you are going, and how to get there. According to Richard Branson, “Everyone needs something to aim for. You can call it a challenge, or you can call it a goal. It is what makes us human…. If you challenge yourself, you will grow. Your life will change. Your outlook will be positive. It’s not always easy to reach your goal, but that’s no reason to stop. Never say die. Say yourself ‘I can do it. I’ll keep on trying until I win.”

Yes, we all need something to pursue. We need something that will keep us going. We need something that will keep us alive. Because without something to hope for, life is meaningless. If you don’t want to live a meaningless life, you must challenge yourself. You must stretch yourself. If you stretch yourself, you will grow. If you push yourself, you will grow. You can do it.

Destiny Is Manifested Only Through Action

Action cures fear. It cures everything. If you want to move ahead, if you want to achieve greatness, you must make action your best friend. Because there is nothing you cannot achieve when you take action.

It is not okay to dream. It is not okay to talk. It is not okay to plan. If you want your dream to come to pass, you must take action. Talk will not do it for you. Planning is good, but you need to take action to put your plan to work.

Take action. Don’t live a life of inaction. Inaction is a disease. If you want to cure your inaction, take action. There is power in action. In the words of Suzy Kassem, “Destiny is manifested only through action. You cannot be the captain of your own destiny, only the sailor, because we cannot control external influences that may alter the stability or direction of our ships. Once you understand this basic principle, you won’t be so hard on yourself when things don’t go your way. If man could could write his own fate, he would have designed his journey to be without obstacles.” From now on, you shouldn’t worry yourself about what you cannot control. You can’t control what is happening out there, but you can control yourself.
