To rise above or to achieve anything in life you need to sacrifice lots of things & those are mainly the things you love.
Want to loose weight-stop eating your favourite food.
Want to be in merit in exams or any studies- devote time to it, forget sleep, tv, mobile, friends.
Want to climb that mountain- forget ease, forget luxury, survive in the harsh of conditions.
Want to be an awesome guitarist- Bleed those fingers of yours.
Want to excel in what you do- Put your 100% in it, work hard & smart for it. There is nothing more important than your desire & what you are passionate about; and if there is then you are realy not committed to it.
You might have to give up on lot of things in doing so & a lot of people will not understand you. Sometimes even you will want to give up but stick to it. Always bounce back even if u deviate from your path for awhile; remember why you desired of it in the first place, why you need it so bad.
Lot of people complain of life being unfair & they not getting what they wanted but in max cases I never saw them putting enough fight for it, never taking that firm stand for it. Rather they give up on it so easily, they value everything else more than their dream; therefore they fail.
So stand firm, stick to your dreams & sacrifice, don't give up easy.
Be different, don't feel safe in that herd, you can do wonders only if you believe in it.
In pic- The towering structure of Chehni Kothi This tower temple of Chehni is the tallest standing structure of its kind in the entire Western Himalayas. Currently, the Great Tower of Kothi is 45 meters (approx.) tall. This tower survived the devastating 1905 Kangra earthquake, although it ended up two upper storeys short because of the earthquake shocks.
A restoration program carried out by the locals helped in the preservation and restoration of this temple. The natives of Chehni Village are popular as great wood-workers.It is believed that this temple was built around the 17th Century by a local King Dhadhu & its been named after his wife- The Queen Chehni.
