And you know, without goal nothing can be achieved in life.

If you have a purpose or goals in life, nothing can stop you...except yourself.

In the "Manjhi-The Mountain Man" movie, you might have seen When that guy tried to carve a road through the mammoth peak, many people thought he would never achieved it.
But to his sheer determination and self believe, he was able to achieve it. 
The persistency he showed led to his success. 

So, remember three key words to crack SSC CGL in your first attempt, determination, persistency and patience.

Be the "Manjhi" and you will definitely succeed.

Let's discuss a few things that will help you to make daily routine -
