Do not try to avoid the struggle. Embrace it!
Leaning into the struggle turns it into a game. You know what the opponent is so it is up to you to beat the opponent and win.
There will be many distractions that try to throw you off your game. These can be people close to you telling you to quit or that you are not good enough. The biggest hurdle is getting over yourself. You must truly know yourself and conquer the inner voice.
When you make yourself believe there is no stopping you.
No matter what it is you are trying to do it can be done.
The beginning is always the hardest part. Once you start then keep going and do not slow down.
