6. Trust your inner guide


When you desperately want something, your inner conscience lets you know that. But again wanting something and working to achieve something are two different things. So trust your inner guide but also work towards your goal.

But ask yourself are you the only one who faces the same challenge? There are many people like you who have same circumstances or worst circumstances than you but still they achieve their goals. The reason is in the perception. As a famous quote says ‘He who says he can, and he who says he can’t, are both right’
