Life is not a struggle, but if you think so, your mind and body will obey what you think

Life need an effort to be made, but it doesn’t have to be a struggle. Struggle is effort plus emotion

Be happy for who you are. I am what I am. No one wants a phony

Strugglers crave acceptance

Strugglers often have a big ego

They feel struggle is noble

They set unrealistic goals

They lack understanding

They worry what others think

They lack stability

They lack concentration

They have poorly designated lifestyles, hold on to life of simplicity

They lack order

They lack concerted action in the marketplace

How to get rid of struggle:

Have a positive opinion about yourself and don’t care about what other’s think

Adjust your energy level and time with your tasks

There’s a lot of people who wants to be friend with you, but you have to had a character

Not every great idea have to be executed, is the goal clear? Is the market available?

Are you trying to capture a castle you don’t really need or want?

Have another perspective into your problem

Is your condition support you? Could you change it?

Assess yourself, are you in control of your life?
