We like to have an excuse. Someone or something to put the blame on.
But the truth is that there’s no force on Earth stronger than a human being who wants to achieve something. Who truly wants something. Who fights, who struggles, who cries in pain but doesn’t surrender.
Man achieves the impossible by sheer power of will, and that makes him magic.
But we must ask ourselves if what we want is truly important, because most times we want what we want because we hope it would make us happy.
But that is just a way of fooling ourselves.
Nothing outside ourselves can ever make us happy.
Change makes us happy. Progress makes us happy. Overcoming obstacles makes us happy.
Happiness is not a destination, but the road we travel to reach that destination.
And all that we need to go down that road is within ourselves.
Right now, right here.
