There are moments when I wonder if I had done such and such a thing at such and such a time, how my life would have changed. I realize the importance of doing that thing at that time but never actually do it. That is what makes me average. People who know what to do and then who have the gumption to actually do it are the people who are successful.
Where does the gumption to do it come from?
It comes from previous successes.
How does one go about building the gumption?
It comes from small victories.
Where do these small victories come from?
From taking the first step.
What motivates one to take the first step?
Having the desire to achieve the first step.
The world is full of suffering,
The suffering has a cause
The cause of suffering is desire.
