The effort we put in to something we want is  sometimes even more meaningful then the desired outcome. Our efforts say a great deal about who we are, what we believe in and how far we are willing to go and how hard we are willing to work for what we want.  We don't always know if what we are doing will work or if it is entirely right for us but the fear of staying stuck in the same place and living in regret oftentimes propels us forward into the unknown and fuels our drive and increases our momentum. Keep pushing forward.
