Have you ever tried doing crunches or weights? If Yes, then you do realize that the measurement of your workouts being effective is that you abs get sore and your muscles begin to pain. With that pain will you start seeing results.
This is the same way one starts to build life. There are quite a few times we are thrown into unknown territories and we start thinking What am I doing? Am I living the life I want? Am I doing what I really want in life?
These questions become more prominent when you hit roadblocks. As Steve Jobs says “Look into the mirror and ask yourself, if this is the last day of your life, are you happy doing what you are doing? If the answer is No for three consequitive days, then you need to change something”.
Don’t loose the motivation when things are not going according to your plan. Keep pushing and keep working out. Change the strategy, work and re-work on your plan of action and push yourself. Identify what motivates you and keep bringing those points which motivate you to accomplish what you wish to accomplish.
Remember, Success always follows failure.
