Having to earn success is a matter of changing your life in terms of your ways of thinking. No one will force you to shed your laziness, addictions and cynicism. It takes a great conscious effort to snap out of such a grasp and face reality. Customs usually can enslave you for life unless you decide to change your fate. It is only when you cannot live without something that you put effort to get it.
Moreover, you can change your life for the better if you alter your perspective. You just choose to live a different life without looking back and in that instant you release a force so strong in you that the forthcoming turbulence tremble.
The secret is to wake up every morning with a desire to change your life and thus beginning enjoying life. Otherwise, if you have no longing to achieve something difficult you will not be eager or ready for tomorrow. The happiest people I have come across are those struggling to overcome addictions, because they know that each passing day they inch closer to ultimate freedom. In reality they are living a struggle and a hope for a bigger tomorrow.
Changing your life comes with new tougher responsibilities but with sweet fruits. It is after you see the bigger picture that you will be disciplined and determined. Sir Benjamin Franklin said it all: “You will find the key to success under the alarm clock.”
