Many are afraid and run from struggle and hardship. Know that it is through struggles that one builds a character with patience, perseverance and strength.
What are areas in your life that you struggle with? How do you feel throughout these struggles? How do you cope? My motivation through difficult times is that it is only for the short while that things seem “difficult”, there are more gains in the future, for this matters more to me. I also see the times as a testing of my character, and knowing that after all this I will come out a better and strong person.
