Remember, the middle of success feels like failure.
The middle of success is a hill you’re halfway up. You’ve made the commitment and are paying the price, but you have yet to reach your reward.
The middle of success is work. It’s the grind where your perseverance is tested and you’re most likely to feel alone. You don’t have any of the naivety you had before you started. And you don’t have the sense of accomplishment you’ll have when you are done.
To be blunt, the middle of success really sucks.
If you’re working hard in pursuit of your dream and having this experience, hear this: You are not doing anything wrong. This is just how it goes. Keep believing in yourself. Continue to put one foot in front of the other. Success is a process, and you are working your way through it.
