Some people think this is a big question, and others think it’s a small one.
If you want to do something meaningful, it’s going to be hard.
Things will break. People will quit. Your family will tell you you’re crazy.
And then it’ll get worse.
You’ll run out of money. You’ll lose your house. Someone will die.
Here’s the big secret that no one seems to realize:
These are not roadblocks. They’re hurdles.
You will have to choose whether you want to sidestep, jump, break through, or turn back.
It’s up to you to decide what’s an adequate strategy for getting around/over/through them.
At the end of it all, you’re going to have to answer to yourself and your actions. You’re going to have to justify it.
That means that your number 1 priority is answering: “Why do I get up in the morning?”
Because it’s going to get hard, and you’re going to question your drive.
And if you can generate an answer that consistently puts you back in the saddle, you’re going to have a much better chance of overcoming adversity.
