Focus on your goals.
Control yourself away from distractions.
This is it. Do this daily. Rinse and repeat.
You do not rise or fall above and beyond who you are. You are therefore, you rise. Unless, you allow yourself to be diluted by distractions instead of being motivated by your goals.
Do not worry of being hurt by hard work. Not working hard is more hurting. So don’t try that out at home.
Keep moving forward with focus, and nothing can ever pierce you.
