Life is like topography... There are summits of happiness and success, flat stretches of boring routine, and valleys of frustration and failure.
It doesn't matter who you are, life doesn't work for you unless you do the right things.. people who believed they are good people are always wondering why it's not working for them and why it's working for someone else, whoever does the rights, for him it works, the existence is not judgemental.
Your goal in life is to find out the people who need you the most, to find out the business that needs you the most, to find the project and the art that needs you the most. There is something out there just for you
