Why should you devote all of your blood, sweat and tears to accomplishing your goals? Why should you go through the discomfort of educating yourself to take consistent action daily to achieve your goals? Why should you put yourself on the path to failures and setbacks that will bring you to your knees? The reason being if you do not do anything decisive today that guarantees the well-being of your future, you will regret it at some point in the future. Another reason could be you will miss your opportunity to instil positive changes in people’s lives.

Advice From My Future Self
When people reach the end of their lives, they will feel that they have accomplished something meaningful or have nothing but regrets.
If there is something you have been dying to do, just do it. Even if there is a small chance that you may fail big time, it is still better than not taking any action. One of the biggest regrets you can carry into your elderly lives is living inside your comfort zone and not take any decisive move.
Alternatively speaking, we will have more regrets over the dreams that we did not pursue than the dreams we did chase after.

The Two Forces That Makes Us Move
So, when you are achieving your goals, how does that influence other people’s lives? Well, if you consider it long enough, we are all driven by one of two things: desperation and inspiration.
When we feel desperate, and our backs are against the wall, when we are presented with no alternatives, we will leap into action. There are countless stories of people who went from being tired of being financially poor and stuck in poverty to becoming millionaires.
The second reason people are driven is inspiration. When you observe an individual achieve stunning success, you begin to think that you can too. The issue is that numerous people see successful people as being fortunate. Now, if you achieve your goal, you will inspire the people around you to have faith in themselves because they would not view you as just being fortunate. Whether you are attempting to accomplish your fitness goals, career goals or any other kind of goal, realise that your success or failure in achieving that goal impacts not just you but also others around you.
. . .
Learning how to accomplish goals and, more crucially, applying what you learn into action will inspire others to chase after their own goals with the same energy you had in achieving your goals.
No one said living your dreams was a walk in the park. It is not. That is why so many people ended up surrendering too easily or too quickly. There are too many stories of failure and insufficient stories of success.
Regardless of the size of your goal, big or small, do everything in your power to achieve it. Your achievement has the potential to inspire someone out there to become more than they thought they could become.
