Who told you this was going to be easy, soldier?
Success as an entrepreneur is incredibly difficult. You will face opposition at every turn. For example, I just had to spend hours reworking my website because Google didn’t like it. You’d have thought I was selling crack cocaine to kids the way Google cracked down on me.
“Unbelievable!” I thought to myself. This is such a waste of time. This is so hard. Why can’t this be easy?
I’m not sure but I heard a man once say “If the mountain were smooth, you couldn’t climb it.” I think that’s very wise!
You see, it doesn’t get us anywhere to complain about how difficult something is. You are a part of the problem and not the solution when you think like that. If you want to be a part of the solution, you accept the fact that life is tough sometimes—for everyone.
“Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men! Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for power equal to your tasks.” (Phillips Brooks)
If you’re encountering opposition, then you are probably doing something right. If you are struggling, you are likely on the road to great victory. As long as you are not beating the air aimlessly (1 Corinthians 9:26), you are making progress.
This is no time to become discouraged! Take aim and fire away. Continue working and trust the process.
Rejoice in adversity. It will make for an amazing success story one day.
