Mr. Clark brings up a good reality point for all of us - if things usually are not difficult, if they are too easy, most of the time that's not a path that leads anywhere. Anything worthwhile in life, things that really matter and are important; usually are not easy. If they were, everyone would be able to do it.
Chasing after things in life that you have passion for will help give you the energy and willpower to overcome those obstacles. Remember, just living life to survive; living with no passion won't help you when the obstacles of life present themselves. In fact I really believe that if you are on a path that's to easy, living with no passion, just surviving; you will find more obstacles that will seem much bigger than if you were on a path of purpose, passion and meaning.
What are your thoughts? Are you looking to see what path you are on?
