You can make your life great, but it requires intelligent effort, rigid discipline, and honorable goals. All distinguished humans have been diligent and industrious workers, in search of quality results rather than great rewards. A life without goals, aspirations, work and achievement is a life unworthy of living. Laziness and idleness breeds unhappiness.
To be happy you must work, and the greatest reward for your work is the knowledge that your work has been well done. There are plenty of rewards for those who produce useful work. If you have the will, the way will reveal itself to you. Do your appointed work today, and do it well.
