A brick wall. You run up against them more often than you would like is a fair assumption.
Sometimes, your hands are thrown up into the air and you turn on your heel and resolve to find contentment in what you have achieved so far. But why is that brick wall really there? Did you ever ask yourself that question?
I, along with all of you, have faced a brick wall or two, and I can say honestly, I have let a few stop me. But when I look back on those, I realize the quote is absolutely correct. I clearly didn’t want whatever it was obstructing me from with my whole heart. Sure it would have been nice, but I wasn’t willing to put in the effort. Examples: becoming a strong 800 meter runner in college – had the talent, didn’t have the heart, so I stuck with the shorter races.
