In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter Voogd talks about so many people compromising to live a life that is less than what they hoped for. To avoid living a life of regrets and settling, Voogd addresses a few steps people can take to find more engagement and enjoyment.

Voogd explains he sees too many people doing the same thing every day, living without urgency. This may mean they are unfulfilled in their life because they are not being inspired or maximizing their lifestyle. Voogd emphasizes the importance of putting your skills towards something you can excel at -- that way, you will not be looking for external motivation and validation.

Once you have a clear vision and know what industry you want to go into, pursue with abandon. Try to seek out those who have achieved the goals and listen to what they have learned. Success can come from surrounding yourself with those with clear values and the self-imposed drive to direct the course of their life. From there, you can find the wherewithal to achieve your own goals.
