For some, starting is fun. It is exciting and interesting. Sometimes in the early stages, we see fast progress and can measure the progress easily. Then suddenly it becomes hard and you don’t see the fast progress you had seen early on. This is the point at which many will give up. This is where many will say “ I just didn’t have enough knowledge, or experience, or time, or money. This is where you must persist. When you get to this point remind yourself that you knew it was coming. You knew so you made a plan. Remind yourself of the plan…the plan to persist. The plan to ask for help, the plan to get unreasonable and begin asking new questions. Remind yourself that you knew this challenge would show up and that you can work through it.  Persist, Persist, Persist.
