“Is it hard? Not if you have the right attitude. It’s having the right attitude that’s hard.”
– Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
In my experience, it’s not so much having the right attitude, as it is sustaining the right attitude. High spirits are easy to come by at the beginning stages of the game, but travel a little further down the road and it’s a barren land. I believe this is what causes most of us to not go after what we want.
