A lot of people have their big dreams and get knocked down and don't have things go their way. Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. We all naturally want to become successful, we also want to take shortcuts, and it's easy to do so, but you can never take away the effort of hard work, discipline and sacrifice.

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today. Everyone has the ability to increase resilience to stress. It requires hard work and dedication, but over time, you can equip yourself to handle whatever life throws your way without adverse effects to your health. Training your brain to manage stress won't just affect the quality of your life, but perhaps even the length of it. We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. Happiness is dependent on self-discipline. We are the biggest obstacles to our own happiness. It is much easier to do battle with society and with others than to fight our own nature. Hard work opens doors and shows the world that you are serious about being one of those rare - and special - human beings who use the fullness of their talents to do their very best.

When you see amazing people and amazing work, remember, that for every two minutes of glamour, there are eight hours of hard work.

In a nutshell, hard work, dedication and faith will get you anything. Imagination will drive itself. You can get anything you want, but you have to have faith behind all your ideas. Stick to your goals and have an undying faith. We spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what we are capable of being, and not enough energy putting ourselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with our lives.

The time is there. The energy is there. The ability is just right there. What stopping us is just the “but”, “maybe” and “what if?.

If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses and no one can stop you.

Remember, that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Working hard is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
