Not many people would like to hear the truth because it hurts. Not many people are willing to go an extra mile to make things happen. It comes from the person's will to make things happen. When you want something so bad, you're going to do anything and everything to have it. It is that drive of wanting to make it, to have it, or whatever it is, that you would fight with everything you've got and failure is not an option.
Success feels and looks different in every person, everyone has their own definition to it. It takes mental physical, emotional and everything. Life happens when you get out of your comfort zone. Just like most people say, notice your pain it teach you something.
Life doesn't come with instructions, but quotes and positive words help aid a little. These hard facts are quite hard. I, myself even get defensive. And these things come from your inner will to do it, regardless.
