It Takes Half Your Life Before You Discover That Life Is A Do-It-Yourself Project

I think most people have at some point wondered why life is treating them so bad, some have even decided not to try anything again in life because they kept on failing each time they try.

Failure remains the only proof that you have tried, you are not a failure until you accept defeat. There is nothing like an overnight success, and you cannot really tell what true success is if you have not tested failure.

On the journey of success, if you quit you are out of the game, I can tell you that in life, success is the survival of the fittest.

The starting point of all achievement is desire, keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat.


Without desire, there is no fire, the fire within can only come out when you really want it to, that is why the start of anything great, is when you decide you have to have it.

That burning desire from within, that moment when you decide that, this is it, that is the start of something great.


Do whatever you can to find that spark, to get that fire within burning. Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

Victory is always possible for a person who refuses to stop fighting. nothing is over for a person who refuses to give up.

There is no failure in a person who does not quit, there is only delayed success. If it is not happening right away, do not quit.

Just have patience, for the fact that it hasn’t shown up yet, but impatience in working towards it and it will eventually be yours.

Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle, every adversity, every failure every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or great benefit.

Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.


Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune or temporary defeat, most people strive for a life of little or no struggle, no one seeks pain or challenges, and nor should they.


But that is precisely where growth lies, in the challenges and the struggle that comes from pushing for what you really want in life.

Those who refused to go after what they truly want in life have failed by default. they might not have to suffer through setbacks, they won’t have to live with the embarrassment of failure, but they will have to live with something much worse and that is regret.

If you are really pushing to become the very best version of yourself, there is going to be a failure, there is going to be heartache, embarrassment, and everything in between, but if you refuse to quit, if you persist, not only will you succeed in getting your goals, but you will earn something much valuable 

Pride and character only come from growth, growth only comes from pushing yourself, you can’t buy it, you have to earn it.

Tell me how you use your spare time and how you spend your money and I will tell you where and what you will be in 10 years from now.

How can you tell what your future will look like, have you looked at your daily habits, if they are strong, your future will be strong.

If they are designed to move you towards a life you want, you will move towards a life you want, if they are not, you won’t.


You have to be intentional about how you spend your time and money and create a plan of daily activities that will over time lead to strong habits, habits that will move you closer to your goals.

A goal is a dream with a deadline, goals are great, but without deadlines, they remain wishes, hopes, and dreams.

Dreams can only come through if you get serious about them, and the first step to getting serious about your goals is to set a deadline for when you must achieve them.

It should be difficult enough to reach to get you moving immediately, but realistic enough to attain.

There should be a struggle to attain it, but not impossible, another way of saying it is, “ the person you are right now should not be able to achieve it, you will have to grow into someone else entirely by pushing yourself enough in a positive way to make sure that it is achieved. that is a Goal!

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans and set sail once more toward your coveted goals.

Defeat comes to all of us, and most of us give up, don’t be like most when temporal defeat visits you take responsibility.

What can you do better, how can you use the failure as a lesson, and how can your plan or path be clearer next .donot give up.

Shock everyone with your persistence and stay in power, then shock them with your result the second time.


Whatever the mind of men can conceive and believe it can achieve, there are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.

Napoleon hill believed there were no limits, most of the greatest people in history refused to entertain the limits of the majority, if they did, they will never have been great and we’d perhaps never know they existed.

Refuse to accept the limits of your family, friends, or society, if it’s never been done before, believe you can be the first, and if no one believes in you, be the one who starts.

It is very clear that a mindset is the greatest asset you can have if you want to do great things with your life, develop that mindset, believe in yourself, and become unstoppable.

The ladder of success is never crowded at the top because most people settle, most people settle before getting on the ladder.

They settle in their job, they settle in their relationships, they settle in their health, they refuse to put in the effort at the start and so their life, even just getting through the day becomes a great effort.

Be one of the few who are not afraid to take the harder path early on so you can enjoy the easier path later in life.


Keep climbing that ladder and when you get to the top, see if you can inspire someone else to work their way up too.

It takes half your life before you discover that life is a do-it-yourself project, if you do not conquer yourself, you will be conquered by yourself.

This life of yours is exactly that yours, it is yours to create whatever you want out of it, if you want a great body, that’s your responsibility, if you want a great mindset it is your responsibility.

The government can tax you to the hill, but no one can tax your mind, that is something you can always control. No one and no event can conquer you, but yourself, take care of your mind, there is nothing more important.

Nurture it with positive thoughts, with teachings that help you grow, with anything and everything that makes you feel better and stronger as a human being, there is nothing more important.


The way to success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge. Deliberately seek the company of those who influence you to think and act on building the life that you desire.

Education comes from within, you get it by struggle and effort and thought, no one ever gets ahead by acting like they knew everything about everything.

Be humble enough to know you don’t know everything, be curious enough to seek new knowledge everywhere you go, in books, in teachings, and with everyone you speak with, there is always something to learn from everyone.

Surround yourself with most people that will either enhance your future or make you feel good in your presence. You are the master of your destiny, you can influence, direct and control your own environment, and you can make your life what you want it to be.


If you cannot do great things, then do small things in a great way, don’t wait, the time will never be just right. Start where you stand and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, better tools will be found as you go on.

If this piece does not motivate you to get up and leave your comfort zone, I wonder what will, the time is now, stand up and try it again, who knows, this might be your opportunity!!!!
