I don’t need it to be easy, I need it to be worth it. – Lil Wayne
There is no easy way to success. If it all comes easy to you; know that you have been lucky and that is an exception. Otherwise, one must have to face difficult times, there will be indecisive times, and after all of this, life will take you to the goal you want to achieve.
Thus, it is important to have a mentality where you are prepared to face anything. Your attitude should be such that you don’t need things to be easy, but you want situations to pan out in a manner that is the worth the while.
You should have enough takeaways from a situation that you can use later in life or you can use it to inspire others during their times of need.
Choose what you want to do in life and go ahead without fearing that the going might get tougher. Find friends who will support you in your tough times and build resilience within yourself to strive for those troubles.
That is how you will build courage and confidence within yourself and these experiences will teach you that life doesn’t need to be easy, but it needs to be worth it.
Also, it is important to understand the worth of defining moments and delve deep into them and truly imbibe the lessons from these defining moments. These are the moments that make your journey special and act as anecdotes when you look back on your way up to the goal.
The journey towards your goal is actually more important than the goal itself and you realize this once you have had a fulfilling journey. Then you have a story to tell and lessons to impart.
When you do inspire others, tell them your stories with the most pragmatic detail and without sounding preachy because in that way people will not understand the true value in your journey.
