We all get stuck. We all hit roadblocks.
The difference between success and failure depends on what you do when you get stuck.
People who fail get frustrated by roadblocks. They take them personally. They let roadblocks become excuses first for missing deadlines, then for giving up.
Successful people learn to treat roadblocks like just any other challenge. They see beyond the roadblocks to the destination they want to reach, and they think, calmly: “there has to be some way around this barrier.”
Successful people know anything worth doing will involve plenty of roadblocks, so they make overcoming roadblocks a core skill.

The Work and The Results are two different things. You can’t say “I want to do the results.” You can only say “I’m going to do the work.” You might want to accomplish the results, but results only happen because of the work you do.
Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
