Whatever that you do, you will do it with some level of difficulty. That challenge will come whether you invite it or not. In the event that the challenge feels too much to the point where you want to give up, a good place to start contemplating (assuming that you still care to continue the fight) is your intention.
Why are you doing it in the first place?
The idea is that your intention holds your main motivation. That is where you find the energy to keep on moving forward and keep on fighting. If your intention isn’t strong enough or meaningful enough, then your motivation might be short lived.
When things get a bit tougher, you might be compelled to give up or run away.
Coming back to the question, why are you doing it in the first place? This is particularly an important question to ask if you are young and you are studying. Why? Because so many young students I met don’t even know why they are studying and they go through the motions until things get hard, and they give up.
That’s not a good way of experiencing your education. That’s not a good way of experiencing your life. You have to check and re-check your intention constantly, and make sure that it points to the direction that is meaningful for you.
