When you desire to do great things, that is when the usual struggles feel like a force choke than a punch to the face. Going through the stresses of the life is typical, but when going through some of these unavoidable or undefeated stresses and you are trying to pull off something major, that is when it feels worse and seems to surround you more.
Nevertheless it is really in your mind. What is happening, is anxiety over you failing at your major task, especially if you believe the stresses are getting the advantage over you. No one wants that, you want to win and fulfill your goal and mission.
You have to believe you can do it constantly, the anxiety will return constantly you have to move it the side and keep it at bay. That fear is not the train of thought you want at all. It spurs negative thoughts which could demotivate you. That will end up stalling your quest for that goal. Do not be an excuse, do not back down to your negativity stand strong and show you desire outweighs anything else.
Many people may not realize this but in a way you should be glad you have the stresses, the anxiety that creeps up on you, true power comes overcoming these stresses and fear. If you can really stand in front of your fear and not move that is true courage. Like Courage the Cowardly Dog, his desire to save Mariel pushes him to bulk up and lay down his fear.
Your desire must be stalwart, you will get sidetracked and debilitated by the stresses of life often. But you have to remember what you are fighting for. Never fear what you can do.
