The Difference Between Interesting and Successful

     Interesting AND successful.....I don't claim to know much, in fact the only thing I know, is that I have a lot to learn. But one thing I've realized? Is that I refuse to sacrifice one in order to be the other. What does this mean? Well in reality, it means a lot of hard work. It means that any free time I have will be spent learning skills and gaining knowledge. The internet is a magical place filled with free information.

     In theory, the idea of improving yourself, for yourself, should be enough to motivate you. But it's not, and none of us truly accomplish anything completely on our own. Realize that everything you are doing to improve yourself on a daily basis is contributing to the great good of humanity. And on that note try and do something to improve yourself everyday! You can't fail. Reading a new book might change the way you view the world and in turn, what you choose to do with your life. And most importantly, realize that whatever it is you choose to do with you life, and your time, affects other people. Not making a choice, is still making a choice. 

     There is no such thing as a defining moment in your life. Everything we accomplish is the result of thousands of small victories and accomplishments. Every step you take in the right direction brings you one step closer to your goal, how ever small that step may be. All you need is the courage to take the first step. There is nothing stopping you except your own fear of failure. The best part about this is that no one cares about your failures, no one is keeping track of how many times you fail. This is a good thing because you will always fail more than you will succeed, get used to it, learn from it, and try not to keep failing the same way.
