Well, we all have dreams, but we sometimes don’t know how to turn them into a reality. Dreams are not “having a big home, having a lot of wealth” but knowing what you want to achieve in order to have those things. We all have times when we feel stuck for different reasons. At times, we have no clue what our passion is, and at others, we seem to be far from what our goal is. Don’t worry, it isn’t just you, as everyone has their struggles, but the point is you should be the one who doesn’t quit. When fear and insecurity grips you, push them away by motivating yourself a bit more. (Don’t sit and binge on chocolates, like I do when I feel like a failure) but stand up once again.
If you have read the book, watched the movie or have heard about the concept, you might be aware that universe always brings you closer to what you want. A power of positive thinking is the ultimate virtue that could help you achieve anything that you want in life. So even if you are about to give hope, take a deep breath, and a bit of break, enjoy yourself and hop onto your agenda.
There is a difference between having the motivation and having a commitment. While the former is a bit necessary, commitment is what gets you through hell times as well.

Stop being nice to yourself
While it is necessary to not be self-critical at all times, you still need to not be nice to yourself. If you are nice and are giving yourself much affection by sleeping till late and being lazy, you would not be able to have success. The only action brings results, and you must put yourself in difficult situations without waiting for a so-called perfect opportunity and then getting into depression!
Others are never reliable
You might be thinking that your partner should motivate you or your friend should help you out a bit, you should know that they have their own dreams to worry about. No one is going to be a part the way you want them to. When they say that a woman is behind a man’s success, I really don’t know what they are talking about! My point is: Don’t expect anything from others and be independent.
