Life comes at you fast, especially if you pursue lofty goals.
When misfortune or just bad luck materializes, stay positive. Have faith in knowing, unforeseen hurdles and problems are not to be associated with failure or mistakes in action. Friction, and the act of overcoming friction, is the most important and universal routine of ambitious enterprises.
When you pursue ambitious targets, you will encounter hardships along the way. Understand hardships and obstacles are part of the process. When things get tough, it is not because your are doing something wrong, it is because you are most likely doing something right.
Troubles encountered by striving for high achievement are much more fun to overcome than troubles coming from sloth and underachievement. -Coach Ball
The idea that you are going to avoid adversity in the pursuit of something noble or worthwhile is a misconception and can lead to motivation issues. The challenges that arise from your enterprise are what makes the enterprise special.
Remember, you are going to face adversity no matter the path, you might has well chose something challenging and beneficial to yourself and others.
