There are different types of people with different sets of mind. There are people who look for solutions and there are people who only say they look for solution. But in reality the later only look for acceptance. When opportunity comes, those who seek it and those who are hungry to get it will take it and will get the most out of it. But those who only look for excuses will let it go. Those will not even try to make a change. Those only look for social agreement in their sorow.
Many people blame their circumstances for their failure. But circumstances do not determine whether you fail or you win. It is your inner power, your mindset, your faith in yourself and your abilities and skills and your hard work that determine your results.
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if the can’t find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)

We are all creators of our lives. We either create them well or we neglect them. It is up to every single one of us what we do with our opportunity to live a life. If you believe in yourself, if you set your goals and deadlines, if you work hard and you work consistently, you will reach your goals. There might be bumps on the road but clear vision and determination can get you anywhere you want. Success is not an overnight event. It takes weeks, months, years, decades and even centuries to succeed. And it is about what is going on behind the curtains, it is about what you do when others do not see you.
Clear up your vision, set your goals and work hard for them. Never stop and get what you are going for. You are the creator, you are the solution.
