Why did life knock me down when I took a stand for once? Sometimes life tends add lots of challenges, and you as a person have to sometimes try even harder than before. Sure it can be rather difficult, but its the effort placed into the work.
Did I not try hard enough, or did I try too little? Some people can just apply a little bit of effort, and other have to apply a lot more to do well in life.
Where am I not applying myself hard enough? We all question this, because when we get the results back of our effort input, we're not happy with our results; which is of course normal. Not happy with those results try even harder.
