True growth happens through suffering and struggling.....as long as you don't give up.Ian Hugo
I learned a lot from this. I really think it's trying to figure out who you are and what you want to do in life. Then it's your life journey to overcome the fear of who you want to become and ignoring what other people say or think about you. Then it's about working on who you want to become day in and out. If you don't work towards this goal, you'll always just be who you are. Who you are today is who you're going to be in the future.Ethan Yu11 months agoAn image of a real man --> Rocky, constantly getting up after getting knocked down.Robert Keller5 months ago
I think you need to go through difficult times to toughen yourself. People that have easy lives don't know what it is like to live through hardships. In life, you can either let hardships demoralize you or you can let it strengthen you.Jack Caswell

I listen to this guy all the time. It keeps me reminded not to make excuses and push through to doing things I don't want to do, that's how you achieve greatness.
