Hard work is what I believe will bring you to where you want. An idea of magical inspiration and motivation that will come some day, perfect day or a lucky win might carry you through a bit, but it will never be reliable. Your choice on the other hand is something that will always be in your control.
While you are here waiting, someone out there is moving. I don’t believe that success is zero-sum game, but I think it is competitive. Success will come to those who fight for it.
And no, it will never be easy. Sadly, it is not flawless. But the trick is take every event to your advantage. So, don’t search for your muse, be your own muse and go push yourself to be proud of yourself down the road. 🙂
