The only thing between where you are now and where you want to be are a series of hurdles.
Few people overcome these hurdles to reach the goal. Few people push through to become the person they want to become.
Stupid people start something while full well knowing, from the very beginning, that they’re never going to push through to the end.
Mature people realise that there are too many hurdles and don’t even start.
Brave people, the very few, decide that they’re going to fight to the end and reach the goal.
When you started your project, your business, your university course, your fitness regime you signed up for a series of hurdles.
Being mature is fine.
Being brave is fine.
Being stupid is inexcusable.
