Have you ever uttered the phrase, “It’s not easy” ? I have at times and I know those times that I’ve said it, I was kinda giving myself permission to not do it or giving myself a way out. So then when challenges came up I could quit and say it’s just too hard.
Life is full of challenges and anytime you are going for something you don’t have it’s going to be hard. Because now you have to do things you don’t usually do to get something you never possessed. So, yes, it is hard but that doesn’t give you an excuse to wuss out. Keep pressing forward.
