In life we have many paths and many options to choose from. Everyone will have a plan or an idea of what you should be doing. But, at the end of the day, if what you are doing doesn’t excite you, it isn’t right for you. Do what is right for you, and find your excitement. Your success is your success alone, no one else’s, as such it doesn’t have to look like anyone else’s.

When you wake up in the morning you should be excited and ready to go for the day. That excitement comes when you have found something that you want to do. It has been said a hundred times, “when you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life”. I truly believe this. At the end of the day, you are the one that has to live with you. If you do not enjoy the way your life is going do something about it. Find what is going wrong and make a change.

Everyone else will tell you what you should be doing and how you should be doing it. And in some instances it might be beneficial to listen to them. If you are part of a team, you will have to listen to the coach to get playing time and ensure team chemistry and such. That being said, remember to be yourself, be strong, and be confident. When you want something as badly as you want to breath then you will have found what you excites you.

Keep striving to find your excitement. Once you have found it do whatever it takes to hold onto it, don’t let anyone else take it from you. Others will try to make you confirm to what their idea of success and excitement is. But their views may not be the same as yours. As I said previously, do what is right for you.
