Wind against your face

The faster you move forward, the more intensely you’ll feel the wind against your face. The more progress you make, the more resistance you’re likely to encounter.

When the challenges become more formidable, it’s because you’ve become strong enough to handle them. Failure rarely meets much opposition. Success, on the other hand, is often challenged at every turn.

When you’re meeting up with resistance, it’s because you’re having an effect. That’s one of the strongest signals you could ever receive to keep on keeping on. Achievement does not come easy. That’s why it is so celebrated and valuable.

Each challenge serves to further prove the value of your pursuit and the depth of your strength. Persist and endure, for the challenges confirm that you are already making it happen.
