If I ask you, “What do you want out of life?” and you say something like, “I want to be happy and have a great family and a job I like,” it’s so ubiquitous that it doesn’t even mean anything.
A more interesting question, a question that perhaps you’ve never considered before, is what pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out.
Who you are is defined by the values you are willing to struggle for.
This is the most simple and basic component of life: our struggles determine our successes. So choose your struggles wisely, my friend.
