We stop when it is hard
We all have goals and dreams in our life, works and relationships. Despite that, we tend to stop when we face challenges. Please stop all the negative thinking and just do.

Ideas don’t come out fully formed.
They only become clear as you work on them.
You just have to get started.
The first step, before anybody else in the world believes it is you have to believe it.
There’s no reason to have a plan B because it distracts from plan A.
The world might say you are not allowed to yet.
I waited a long time out in the world before I gave myself permission to fail
Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential.
I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me.
Maybe I was afraid of change.
Make a choice.
Just decide what it’s gonna be,
who you’re gonna be,
how you are going to do it,
don’t even bother asking.
Don’t bothering telling the world you are ready.
Had I really succeeded at anything else,
I might never have found the determination
to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged.
I was set free,
because my greatest fear had been realised.
and I was still alive,
and I still had a daughter whom I adored,
and I had an old typewriter and a big idea.
And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
You might never fail on the scale I did.
but some failure in life is inevitable .
It is impossible to live without failing at something.
Unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.
Anyone working on a big vision will get called crazy even if you end up right.
Anyone working on a complex problem will get blamed for not fully understanding the it even though it’s impossible to know everything upfront.
Anyone taking initiative will get criticized for moving too fast because there’s always someone who wants to slow you down.
In our society, we often don’t do big things
because we’re so afraid of making mistakes
that we ignore all the things wrong today if we do nothing.
Learn to say “Fxxk You” to the world every once in a while.
You have every right to.
Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder, wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting, hoping for some easy way out,
struggling, grasping, confusing, itching, scratching, mumbling, bumbling, grumbling, humbling, stumbling, rumbling, rambling, numbling, gambling, tumbling, scumbling, scrambling, hitching, hatching, bitching, moaning, groaning, honing, boning, horse-shitting, hair-splitting, nit-picking, piss-trickling, nose-sticking, ass-gouging, eyeball-poking, finger pointing, alleyway-sneaking, long waiting, small stepping, evil-eyeing, back scratching, searching, perching, besmirching, grinding, grinding, grinding away at yourself.
Stop it and just DO.
