You will never have to work or be forced to do anything if you engage in activities that bring you pleasure regularly. Find time for play, and make your work playtime as well. Resistance to do your job will be eliminated and thus you will have less friction. Less friction means more momentum. More momentum is more productivity and success.
Having a purpose means you will always have a strong reason why you are doing something. Without that strong "WHY?" it will always be easy to put things aside and procrastinate doing what needs to be done. Purpose is the pathway to high performance. What drives your lifestyle? Dig deep inside yourself and discover what your driving force is, and let that be your guide. Difficult times won't be as hard to push through when your purpose is set in stone. Remember, it's not what you're selling, it's what you stand for.
What do you want to be good at? What are you doing to make yourself better? How are you practicing living a more fulfilling life? Are you doing the same things that bring no results? Do you dread the boring mundane rituals of your life? Learn how to practice being more successful, stop rushing and quantifying everything, and find joy in practicing the things that you do everyday. Do you want to be more fit, do you practice training and eating well? You want to make more money, what are you practicing in those areas...
Many people focus only on the end result so much that they lose focus on the process and the experience that is going on in their lives. Don't get so caught up in looking so far down the path that you neglect the beauty that is right under your nose. Amazing things are happening everyday that transform your life and can propel you to greatness, but if you're too focused on only long term goals, you will miss great opportunities that can open your eyes up to amazing things.
You do not have to be in a specific place to be successful. You can make due with wherever you are and make the best of your current situation. The grass is not always greener on the other side. Embrace the beauty of what you have and where you are, you could be sitting on a gem but don't see it because its stuck up your ass.
You must be willing to put in your time and devote your energy into becoming better than you are. There are no quick fixes, be patient and persistent with your purpose. Consistently drive forward with your passion and focus on your development, this will ensure long term growth and success.
Do you have a plan of where you want to be in a year? Decide what it is you want, why you want it, and write down everything that needs to be done to make it happen. What do you want your legacy to be? What are you doing differently now that you weren't doing before? What's unique about your direction? What are you doing to change your life, or change other peoples lives for the better?
The world does not need another tutorial or exercise prescription, the secrets out (we have YouTube). We need more inspiration, motivation and direction. Most people know what to do, they just need the direction and motivation to get going.
Learn how to experience more pleasure, evolve for the better and enjoy life to the max. Embrace your unique abilities and discover your path. Don't resist growth or you will stress yourself out.
In one year, what will it take for you to be truly happy?
