Change is hard. Once goals are defined, the real work begins. Anyone can dream, but not everyone realizes those dreams. It is through the work that lessons are learned. Wisdom is not gained by being gifted success. Who we are when we start out, and who we are at a given point in the path to our goals can seem like completely different people. And that is the idea, how we execute the process, how we deal with adversity, that is what truly demonstrates our character. We are familiar with the feeling of not trying; by giving up we can end up back in this place. However, what is the feeling of continuing on, forever? To completely change yourself and become something different. Of waking up each day and continuing to hammer that nail. Becoming our best self. The only way to know is to push on.
