Life is really what you make of it.
There are only 2 players in the game of life. Your mind is both of them.
Life is basically a conflict between 2 sides of our mind. One side which wants, one side which resists. And yet there can be only one. What makes or breaks you is which one you decide to follow.
I really believe nothing is impossible. Why? Simply because everything just comes down to how bad you want it. It's all in the mind.
One of the things I've learned in life is that life is full of lazy fuckers. Who will discourage you. De-motivate you. Question you. People who have been dominated for so long by the resistive mind. Fuelling yours.
But at the end of the day, the only person in life who really matters is yourself. Stop comparing yourself to anybody else. You came into this world alone, and will get out alone. It's as simple as that. The rest of world are merely players, insignificant others in the game. They matter if you think they matter. Everything is just what you think.
There are no rules. No norms. None of that matter because you are the universe as far as you are concerned. It began when you began, and it will end when you end. That's it. So you get to lay down the rules for your universe. Only the rules that you think matter matter. Limits and impossibilities are created by the resistive mind.
There are no limits on human potential. Because limits cease to exist if we want them to.
But you have to keep pushing it. Life has to have a direction. A dreamless person is pitiful. Even if you're 40, you can train for a triathlon. Take it as a challenge to your mind. Happiness is when you win the battles against the resistive mind.
