“All things are difficult before they are easy.” Thomas Fuller
The path towards success is like climbing a never ending flight of stairs. Each step, another obstacle to overcome. Each step, another mistake to learn from. Each step, another closed door opened.
Success is not for the meek. It requires a warrior mindset. When you have a warrior mindset, each one of the steps you must climb is an enemy you must defeat.
It takes years to get to the top of the stairs. Only the most persistent are able to make the climb. But once you get to the top, you’ll find an elevator waiting for you.
Things are always harder at first. The beginning is always a struggle. But, in time, things do get easier. You learn, you improve, you gain experience. Eventually you figure out what to do and what not to do.
You see evidence of this law at work all the time. Someone toils and grinds away at something for years, perfecting their craft. Then, someone in the media exposes their greatness to the world. Suddenly, they find themselves riding the elevator. And they become another overnight success story.
