How many times have you felt unmotivated or disheartened to continue your goals because of a constant struggle or obstacle you're encountering? A lot of people are like this. No matter how you tell them to continue in life and move on, it's perfectly normal to feel hopeless or lose the can-do attitude from time to time. The more important thing, though, is that you also strive to get back on track, no matter what types of struggle life may give you.
