In the end, there’s only one important thing to remember. We do not choose the life we get. As unfair as it may seem; on the bright side; we get to choose the outcome. Like world-renowned psychologist Jordan Peterson said, “A meaningful life does not come with just ‘Rights’ but rather with responsibility.” In the end, life is undeniably filled with suffering, however; when you take responsibility for something, including your self, the suffering seems worthwhile.
We’re all part of this cycle, no one is exempt from life’s sufferings. The only way to motivate yourself towards success is by assuming responsibility. What gives your life meaning; will also be the greatest fuel for the fire called success.
