There’s a big chance the people in your environment don’t strive for the same things as you. Many people live a timid life. People who don’t want anything from life and who spend their time watching tv.
Don’t give your time to those people. You might become one of them.
One of the biggest mistakes we make is that we assume we always learn from our mistakes. I've met enough people who learned little from their own stupidity. We all know these people. In fact, we probably are these people. You know why? It's damned hard to learn from your mistakes.
