If you are not good at facing your struggle now, you will have a difficult time facing it in the future.

You can’t live your life without encountering setbacks in your life. The purpose of a setback is to bring out the best in you. It is not to stop you, but to push forward.

You must face your setbacks. If you don’t like to face them, you must face them anyway.

Because they are there. They are not going anywhere. So if you want to be successful, if you want to do more, if you want to recreate yourself, you must do more than you are doing right now.

If you don’t face setbacks in your life, you are not playing the right ball. You are playing the wrong ball.

If you want more, do more. If you want less, do less. Whether you do more or you do less, there is no short cut to where you are going.

Setbacks are inevitable. Disappointments are inevitable. Failures are inevitable. Doubts are inevitable. It is up to you to create your own life.

One thing is clear: There is no life without obstacles, lots of them.” You know yourself. No one knows you more than you know yourself. There is no life without struggle. According to George Gurdjieff, “Without struggle, there is no progress and no result.”

Without struggle, there is no life. Without struggle, there is no pain. Without struggle, there is no success. Without struggle, there is no movement. And without struggle, there is no growth.

If you want to be successful, you must have the courage to face your struggle. You are enough to face it. Do it for yourself.
