My father thought me this at a very young age and I have never forgotten it.
In our daily quest be it for weight loss, economical improvement, religious growth
or whatever important to us crusade we are on., we must remember that
not everyone will like, agree or understand what it is that we are doing or why.
Be clear as to what it is that you want and why and from then on
continue to make continuous steady progress towards the realization
of your end goal.
Figure out who you are. Decide who you want to become.
Get to work.
