Every day I wake up I try and do something that challenges me. I feel like you cannot live life to the fullest by “playing it safe” you have to go after everything you want and if something is not difficult than you probably aren’t challenging yourself. We can only truly succeed when we go after what we want and struggle a little bit to get there. But in the end we have to know that the struggle was worth it.
This is my all-time favorite quote that perfectly illustrates what I said before. Challenging yourself is doing things that you normally wouldn’t, that a lot of people do not have the courage to do. And those people are the ones who say that your dreams are too big or that they’re unrealistic. That’s why you have to stay away from them.. just like the quote says, they are creatures of the commonplace. Don’t be one of those!
