If you want to get on the path towards a better life, you must decide that taking steps down that path is more important than the things that are keeping you from it.
You must no longer allow yourself to be held back by a lack of discipline, a lack of resources, a lack of motivation, or a lack of initiative. And you must no longer allow yourself to be held back by fear.
Too many people spend too much time trying to be popular — or trying to produce popular things — an not enough time doing things that they’ll be proud of no matter the outcome is.
Being truly proud of your work and what you accomplish is rewarding regardless of its popularity.
Consistently doing — and seeking out things you can do that you’ll be proud of, no matter how things turn out — can be tremendously rewarding and will often increase one’s sense of self-worth and feelings about their life.
