Remember: "Be the change you wish to see in the world"
You have the power within you to create the life you want to live. You have the power to shape the world around you just by who you are being, and how you are communicating. The law of attraction, one of the fundamental aspects to living a life by design, explains that everything that is created in the outside world is the result of what takes place internally. Being the change you wish to see in the world starts with taking full responsibility for everything that is happening in your life.
I went to the Inspiration zone - and went through pain to experience a great place in my life.

Nothing is impossible, you've come too far to quit.

Crossing Mongolia alone in 2012
The beginnings. Cycling in South Korea.
Start close to home and adventure, then branch out to explore for a few days.
Never quit. Take your time becoming who you want to be.
Even strangers on the road share a dream to live their lives under sunsets free of pain and suffering, If you want to make it happen in your life, you must go through the pain to experience the success. Nothing comes from nothing, effort must be constantly applied to reach your goals.
Keep pushing forward. Never turn back on your dreams.
Finally a special poem about life's experiences and what they can give you. This was hanging on a picture frame in my childhood home for many years, as I brewed over problems I faced at the dining room table, I could always look up and find some inspiration, and some solutions. Enjoy this...
Desiderata (Latin: "desired things") is a 1927 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann (1872–1945)
Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its shams, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.
