A person who is motivated by pleasure inevitably burns out, because there is an addiction to pleasure. More stable motivation is a sense of duty, self-esteem, honor, idea, etc. Money, praise, gingerbread, whip ... addictive.
Do what you must and be what you will… this is a metaphor for love. Love is the art of accomplishing the impossible. 38% you can do yourself, and leave the rest to hope and miracle. You can't do much, and that saves you from being complacent.
After carefully studying the biographies of various people and the stories of thousands of books, I noticed that the situation when a person is sitting up to his ears in problems, stretched forever.

All people always lie. It's impossible not to lie. Truth is that which is infinite, and words have a form and are therefore limited. Any words are lies, because they always carry only part of the truth. Since all people lie and this is inevitable, lies should be treated with leniency and still believe people. Faith and love for people turn all their words into truth.

We should be happy with the inevitable obstacles and problems, because they allow us to accumulate strength and focus on the right path, and save us from unnecessary temptations. The true path is joyful. Power is joyous.
