You can make goal after goal; strive for achievement after achievement, but if you aren’t having any fun doing it–there’s a good chance you won’t succeed. Now, that doesn’t mean that you should quit at the first sign of hard work. It just means that your dream should mean something to you.
No matter where the meaning comes from, you have to find some deeper reason for achieving beyond just achieving. You have to do it for you. If you can turn your fun into your life’s dream, then you are well on your way to both a happy and successful life!
