Live for yourself! Live to win, achieve and succeed. Always remember that you got to take care of yourself, look after yourself and lift up yourself. Raising yourself is your responsibility; merely your responsibility! The entire world doesn’t accept, support and encourage you growth. Only a part of it does. This part is like a dot compared to the entire universe. You know that most hate your growth. Now, you also know about what you are supposed to do? Never feel low by any chance.

5. “Work hard now in silence and celebrate your victory later.”
You don’t really have to tell the world about what you are doing to succeed. Not all believe in your ideas and support your ideologies. Before you even start to implement your action plan, a lot of influences, minds and talks start to echo which knowing or unknowingly create a negative impact which tries to stop you from what you are doing. You may even be questioned if your ideas and approaches work. No one other than you shall trust what you are doing to the fullest. So, why do you really have to share your thoughts, working pattern, approaches, methodologies and other ways and paths which you take to succeed? Set your goal, frame the path, follow your way, walk sincerely and silently and you will watch the world celebrating your success.
