It is unforgivable to do what one doesn’t love especially if one succeeds.

We all want to reach our goals and succeed in life. We all wish to attain wealth and many of us even dream of attaining fame.
But what is holding many of us back from it? What is obstructing our path to success?
And most importantly, what is exactly this key to success?
With a simple acronym, D.I.O.R., I’m going to explain to you a good method to succeed in life with a positive mindset.
Yes, you must dream if you want to be successful. Dreaming big is the first step to getting where we want. It’s the first key to success.
And this doesn’t necessarily mean to waste your time and being irrealistic if you dream productively.
If you dream of what you really want in life and can actually achieve, you get the right motivation to consistently work on getting where you want.
You have enough fuel to be self-disciplined enough to take massive action every day.
It may take time to get where you want, but if your desire is strong enough, believe me, you can go anywhere.

RAK (Random Act of Kindness)
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
— Jim Rohn
The Random Act of Kindness is, as the name suggests, a good way to be kind to others every day and to feel better. In other words, as per this definition published in Wikihow, it’s a:
“Deliberate attempt to brighten another person’s day by doing something thoughtful, nice, and caring.“
Not only will consistently helping others make you a better person, but it will also remind you of how kindness always brings positivity, both to you and to others.
On the official website of the RAK Foundation, you can find lots of nice and original ideas on how to be kind to others, like donating used clothing, letting someone get in line before you, volunteering at a community garden, and much more.
