Great people do great things; not because they are great, but because they refuse to be average. Irrespective of your personal story and whatever you are doing now, there is a greater potential in you to explore.
To achieve the life you want, one filled with success and happiness that will make you satisfied; you need to prioritize getting what you really want above all else.
You also need to identify and avoid situations that aren’t good for you, i.e. poor health, toxic relationships, lousy commute, things that make you feel angry all the time; all fixable issues if you change the things in your life causing them. You just need to commit.
The greatest grief of your life will not be the loss of family members, friends or loved ones, but the loss of your purpose. Take time to reset your life with massive goals that are consistent with the hidden potential you have denied yourself.
