When going through life you have many options and ultimately dictate the path you take.
Everyone has the intention of pursuing their dreams, but the reality is that it takes a lot of work and dedication. I love hearing about the latest “overnight success”. While it is true that they have just found fame and gained some notoriety, most of them have toiled for years for little money and most people telling them to abandon their dreams and get in touch with reality. I love the documentaries of actors and musicians that show the struggle they went through before they became famous.
I keep this in mind when encountering struggles and difficult times. These are merely tests of your resolve and make you a stronger person. Many successful people say that if it wasn’t for the hardships and struggles they endured, they would not be where they are today. I maintain the mindset that obstacles and setbacks are only tests that give me strength and energy to push harder. Perhaps this mindset will assist you in your tests.
Here is a motivational video that I found inspiring.
