If you are only focusing on yourself and your life then are not building any type of legacy. Becoming successful is tough but nobody does it without helping other people. A life is only worth the impact it has on other lives so strive to make the people around you better.
We must all stop separating ourselves into categories of nationalities and political parties. These ideologies separate us and cause us to only communicate and socialize with the ones who hold our same beliefs. We have to broaden our scope and accept everyone even if they are different.
Either you take charge of the day and do what you want to do or you listen to other people and do work to further them. Stop living your life based on the ideas of other people. Start to take charge of the day and use every minute to better yourself.
“If you want to make beautiful music, you must play the black and the white notes together.” – Richard Nixon
To make beautiful music, you have to play all the chords. In relation to everyday life, to make the world a better place, you have to respect everyone, no matter what they look like. The color of our skin does not determine our fate on this earth. The color of our skin does not mean we are inferior or superior to another being.
“Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.” – Aristotle
We are all on this planet to reach goals and strive for something that is difficult to obtain. We become lost when we don’t have anything to strive for. We get complacent and comfortable and the years go by and we have not done anything with our lives. Always stay focused on your goal and your purpose in life.

“Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.” – Zayn Malik

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” – Viktor E. Frankl
We have little control over the circumstances around us. We are limited to seeking new employment, ending a relationship, dwelling on something or someone we’ve lost, or some other forfeiture. Instead, we must look at what we do have control over. We must go within and approach change as an opportunity for personal growth.
You get what you deserve. That’s the rule of karma. If you feel you’ve been dealt a bad hand, do something to change your seat at the table. People as a whole are creatures of habit. You have to change those very habits in the core of your being to change what you earn in a physical or material sense.
