The difficult path’s the right one

If you find yourself thinking, ‘This is really hard…’ it’s a sign that you’re probably on the right track. Any progress, any learning, growth, improvement or mastery comes not as a result of comfort and ease, but difficulty, challenge and even (and sometimes especially) hardship.

As long as you know how you want to do something (or you have guidance from a teacher or mentor), and it’s not something physically impossible that mankind literally has 0.0% chance of doing, the ‘difficult’ way is the way.
