Allowing the journey to success to defeat you is more of a loss than actually failing, because you're missing out on the potential growth and lessons that come with it. The best things in life are difficult to achieve but you will cherish the results more in the end because anything worth having is worth working for! If it seems like things are tough for you right now, just remember: God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.
Although, everyone's journey is different we still have to trust and know that there will be bumps in every road. We all want the end results but struggle putting in the necessary work to produce them. Something I always tell myself when it seems like the dues are becoming overwhelming is no team ever won a championship without practicing; and if they did, the trophy couldn't have been worth much. Remember, anything worth having is worth working for.
