Almost everybody is familiar with the saying Aim for the stars, because if you miss at least you land on the moon. Yeah yeah it's inspiring and all even if the saying is a bit ironic. To be optimist and a pessimist at the same time.
The saying is simple enough, which means that if you want to do something, do it as best as you could. Such as trying to get Mumtaaz on exams, or aim to run as fast as 100km/h. Whether if it is doable or not, that's a whole another story. However, if you are gutsy enough to have such aims, wouldn't it be pathetic to have just a so-so effort? You aim for mumtaaz, but you study a week before the exam.
Enough said. If you are planning to climb a mountain, you must prepare months prior of the journey. You must have the stamina to face ice-cold weather, you must have the proper gear, you need money to buy those gears obviously, and most importantly, you should do it for the sincere reason that You yourself wanted to do it in the first place, not to impress per se.
Success means sacrifice. You know that, I know that. Another important thing to realise is that you should start NOW. Orang tua-tua kata bertangguh itu mencuri masa.
