Do. Not. Settle.

“You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle…” – Steve Jobs

If there’s one thing I learnt in life… it is do not settle.

Do not settle for mediocre relationship. Relationship where deep down you know you have to compromise.

Do not settle for anything you feel you’re undeserved of. Because each of us has our values, limits and wants. Do not settle until you find them.

Do not settle for a man that cannot give you what you want. Be it time, happiness, commitment or love. You deserve every single thing you want.

Do not settle when your life is causing you grief. Work hard until you get where you want to be. Visualize your winning, your joy and your happiness. You let go but at the same time, you work hard, press on to reach your goals.

Do not settle. Life is not about settling down and being OKAY with anything. Do not settle for people who are always unavailable for you. Do not settle for things that are making you unhappy. Thrive to the best and never ever give up. Most importantly, constantly seek for things that bring you joy. Because life is so much more fun with dreams and inspirations.

Now some might say… it’s easy for you to say! Wait till you’re my age and you’ll understand how hard it is not to settle. How eventually, you will learn what to do and what not to do. Well, I tell you now, AGE is just a number. I won’t settle. Whatever I’ve experienced or will experience is only a lesson learnt. I will be the best version of me at whatever age I will be. Until then, I won’t settle. I won’t settle for a mediocre me. When I reach your age (any number it might be), I will say, I haven’t settled. And I will still not settle until I reach my goal.
