Going against adversity, as we are pursuing something meaningful in our lives, is serious work! You need patience, dedication, commitment and self-belief, and this is just simply simplifying it to make it very easy to understand.
So, if you are like me;
i. one who does not believe in living a mediocre life
ii. one who wants to live a meaningful life
iii. one who wants to take charge of our destinies
then, you know this will not going to be a smooth sailing. It will not be; because if the process does not worry you, then probably the goals aren't that meaningful enough for you.
