“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” ~Frederick Douglass
Struggle often feels like a lack of progress, so it’s nice to turn it on its head and realize that it’s actually the way progress is made. If you’re not struggling you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The important part is not to let struggle deter you from making that progress. Step one is learning to view struggling as a positive thing, rather than a negative thing. Then you won’t be so hard on yourself if you find that you’re struggling again. It just means you’re learning, growing, and taking on enough to keep you busy.
