In order to successfully navigate life and achieve our goals, we usually have expectations of ourself along with the task in mind. Many times, we may blame our lack of success on external reasons.
Rightfully so, external conditions do play an important role in our ability to achieve goals. Take for example how difficult owning a blog would be without the existence of the internet. The nearest thing to a blog back 30 years ago is a news journal article. Today, some 86% of Americans use the internet, up 36% just since the year 2000. More than 45% of people 12-18 years old read blogs and more than 10% of them work on their personal blog!
