Read this article on FB and thought it made great food for thought.
It is always easy to look at successful people and want to be the same as them. But we are not always prepared to go through the same amount of hardship and possess the same level of determination when it comes to surmounting the same problems as those successful people did to get to where they are today.
Because success and happiness requires struggle. You cannot reap the rewards without going through the struggles.
So when you're going through your daily struggles of dragging yourself to school, or work, you can remind yourself that your pain and struggles are for a purpose. They are bringing you closer to your end goal, whatever it may be.
