A great man once said:
“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
I cannot completely agree with this statement, but I understand it in a different way. We as a people should stop complaining and start working more towards that ideal in our lives.
This has been my philosophy in life ever since I started studying about programming in a more serious manner. In a way, my early successes have showed me that a person can achieve a lot if they really try and are passionate about what they do. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are as long as you have that inner flame and tenacity, you are destined to succeed. I think this experience has showed me that everything can be learned or achieved, even the most difficult of subjects, even those things that one thought were impossible for them.
So my advice to you (and to myself) is to follow your dreams. But not only that – if you encounter any difficulty that sets you back, you should try to start again. Not just try, do it. Even if your goal seems very far from you at this moment, the important thing to remember is that it will get closer, only if you continue striving and working towards it.
JUST DO IT!
