I read the "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield every year. Sometimes multiple times a year for this single reason; to remind myself that the best things in my life are often the hardest to accomplish.

If it was easy to built a multi-million dollar company, wouldn't anyone do it? If it was easy to be in-shape would everyone be buff as heck?

If it was easy to be a full time creative, wouldn't everyone be busting out their best ideas?

The things that seem most difficult to do, are often the most shaping, growing and fulfilling experiences. I don't know where we got this idea that we want everything in life to be easy. But if you believe that, that "resistance" will always kick your butt, and you will never start what you are most gifted to do.
