To achieve real success, we do not simply settle for
mediocrity but should always strive to achieve the most of out of life
by giving our best. It is only when we are under pressure and yet keep
pushing ourselves to do better then we deserve success and have
others complimenting us.
Success in life depends entirely on self-discipline, focus and being
capable of managing hurdles which only exist to distract and test us
simultaneously in our quest to be the best. When they come, they
usually appear in the most severe forms that can make or break our

will occur from time to time.
