Have you ever wondered why we’re here, what our purpose is, and why obstacles seem to chase us? If you ever thought about these, you might know. There is no strict answer nor physics nor history could answer this either.
Over the years, my biggest drive to achieve my goals has been my belief that we are here for a reason – a purpose that we can potentially accomplish in our lifetime. However, what’s challenging about it is determining your purpose. Once you know it, that’s when the hard work starts, striving to fulfill and execute it. Accomplishing my purpose would also mean achieving my goal which is to influence and help people as well as to become a better version of myself. I believe there is something above us, something more powerful which has sent us here to overcome those obstacles.
“I treat obstacles as the life lesson or drive that keeps me moving forward”
Imagine a world without suffering, struggles and obstacles, we wouldn’t be able to learn the value of hardship and we wouldn’t be capable of improving ourselves.
Accepting and overcoming obstacles improved my self
Once I accepted that the problem we face is a way to make us stronger individuals, many things become smoother and less stressful in my life. Many successful people like Albert Einstein, Bill Gates, Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg and many more overcome their obstacles “Wildly Successful People Who Overcame Huge Obstacles To Get There” where their hard work paid off. If you look around, all of us serve each other – people. Either you work for someone or you own your business, we all have a free will to choose what we want to do and where to do it. Not many people believe in this, again imagine if everyone would believe in this, there wouldn’t be a balance between many which could lead to human destruction.
Serving more people in business
Serving more people in business both owning a business and working for someone seeks hard work and discipline. I am doing my best to own a business someday so I can serve and help more people. I started to sharpen my mindset and determination to prepare myself for any obstacles that may occur. At some point, I enjoy those challenges because they don’t make me stagnant. Feeling uncomfortable drives me forward because with willingness only, nowadays it is not enough to achieve everything. You have to take one step at the time.
I am sacrificing my years from the life for a bigger picture
The key is that there is no magic key to be successful, it’s about sacrifices and determination. It’s about hard and persistent work. In the last 6 months I have sacrificed a lot of my time, without parties, no travelling abroad, no dating, and basically do the same routine every day which includes university, gym, weekend hikes and constant work on myself and business. You might think that this is not life, but for me, it’s just a first move for something bigger than now. I know that I will have more quality time in the future, but for now, I must deal with the difficult part.
I don’t have a one to one mentor, but I follow and pick successful people habits, and all of them did sacrifice part of their life for many years, some of them still do that regardless of the success they possess. My inspiration are those people, I am grateful for the hard work they have exerted to make this world a better place. Someday, I will meet some of them and thank them in person. If you are curious about who these inspirational people are who made an impact on me through their work and contributions, you should start following them.

All of them have overcome many obstacles and guess what with hard work and a vision they have achieved what they wanted. It is not for everyone, I understand, but I am preparing myself for the big picture, bigger than I can imagine and this is how I am accountable for writing this blog.
Be your own boss
We all know that everyone can work hard and achieve something or do something the complete opposite which is to be lazy and complain about others and life. Ask yourself what you will be in 10 years from now on, would you be happy with the person you see now? Do something! Be the boss of your own life, because you know what your passion is, have you tried it before you say no? The clock is ticking!
