Everyone at point “a” wants to be at point “z” (desired state). But who wants to exhibit the discipline, humility, and sacrifice to navigate points b through y? Not only that, but luck is needed as well. There is no guarantee of success; the only guarantee is grinding, exacting effort.
But is there any other choice? In the end, how could you NOT view this challenge as awesomely exhilarating? 😉
