Many people are working really hard at work and hope that one day they’ll be really successful. If you’re one of these people, take a moment to think about what you really want and what you’re chasing for. Is working hard the key to success?

Of course, you need to work hard for whatever you want to achieve. But the key is, are you clear about your goals and your dreams? Are you fighting for what your heart wants? If the reason why you work hard is to earn more money or because others are also doing this, I’m sorry to tell you that working hard will not lead you to success. You’re fighting for nothing because you don’t know what you want, or worse, you’re fighting against what you truly want.

“Remembering that you are going to die one day is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. Follow your heart.” - Steve Jobs

Others will try to convince you to stop following your heart, but why should you listen to them if you’re clear about your dream? We don’t have very long lives, so instead of trying to please everyone around you, follow your instinct. It’s your journey and you do know what’s best for you. When you’re determined to do it, you’re not far from success.
