We are generations used to getting things quickly and easily. Company slogans highlight speed or getting exactly what we want. Lifestyles are prized that involve little work, easy money, and the newest trinkets.
This doesn't actually work. Nine times out of ten, it's up to you. What work are you putting in? How hard are you going after your dreams? We all have dreams and things we want to succeed at doing. No one else can do it for you. You are alone in your head. You are alone in your own head. Whether you defeat yourself or push through is on you.
Going it alone is not easy. It puts responsibility on you, and no one is going to keep you accountable. It means that you have to deviate from the crowd. You have to deviate from your comfort zone.
