What’s your aspiration? If I want you to tell me the reason why you want to do it, do you think you can tell me a good reason?

It’s important for you to know the purpose of doing the things you want to do because it will be the only thing that remind you to keep going when you have obstacles on the way. For sure there will be unexpected challenges when you’re trying to achieve your goals but your good-enough reason will lead you through.

It’s good that you’re doing things for people and you’re trying to help them and make them happy. But even if they don’t appreciate what you’ve done, you’ve actually done something good for yourself and you’ve enjoyed the process.

Do your thing. Do it every day. Do it ‘unapologetically’. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing. – Asher Roth

It’s almost impossible to make everyone happy with what you do, yet you should at least make yourself happy by enjoying the process and results. So have you got yourself a good reason to start to do what you want? Whenever you think about quitting, just remember why you started.
