You don’t have to live life the way other people expect you to. Step outside your comfort zone. Tell your friends crazy ideas and see who supports you. Those are your true friends. Consider the broader concerns of humanity. What do you want to get out of life? What else can I offer the world that no one else can? Set goals. Improve the lives of others. Repay those who have helped you succeed. Find a good way to deal with gatekeepers and critics as they will stand in your way. Do not accept mediocrity. Be passionate about your cause. Give it your all. Use the power of ‘weak ties’. The more time you spend on your goals, the better. Be remarkable. Plan a timeline for your goals as well.
