When did someone sit down and promise you that it was supposed to be easy? Or better yet, fair? It’s not guaranteed to be easy or fair, and the people who get what they want go after it in spite of and because of each and every advantage or disadvantage they are thrown.
In the words of my coach, during a particularly arduous sequence of events:
“Just fucking do it.”
“Show me you can do it no matter what. This is when you become better than the best. Not when circumstances are perfect. It’s when circumstances are shit and you do it anyways.”
