In order to lead a successful life, one has to explore and become one with himself. There is not one but many ways a man can conquer his inner self and come out as a winner.
You are tested with difficult situations in your life which may at times seem as the end to your journey, but you must fight it and be brave enough to deal with it. If you believe in yourself, none can stop you other than your own-self. They say that we are our own worst enemy, thus look in the mirror and say to yourself that you can do anything that you wish to achieve.
We are the masters of our own journey indeed, and we should chose to seek our path wisely. Know that, our actions and decisions are what can make us or destroy us. If we tend to follow the wrong path, there will not be any moment of happiness for us in this life or after we have passed away. So one should seek to follow the right path, which makes all the sense in itself, thus benefiting ourselves and others along the way. That is surely a path, that the wise ones have chosen before you and are remembered to this day.
In the end, do what matters to you and makes you happy. Thus, everything will happen for you to succeed in your endeavors by itself, so as they say ‘In the end, the good will always win’.
