You know how it is, when more hard work leads to more hardship, when the world urges you to quit, when detractors cackle and friends ask you to give up.

You know how it feels, when you keep pushing hard, when the same small and consistent steps begin to show results, when things begin to take shape, when even you are surprised, and detractors begin to say they always knew you would make it.
