Next Level Thinking
Now I am going to put something out there, which may help you if you are struggling in any facet or form. You must expect to struggle, if you want massive success!

My advice is to learn to teach yourself to be patient, and to keep fighting through the pain and uncertainty. We all have that inner “heart of a warrior” mentality!
Use this Knowledge Hard!
You can use what you now know to get what you need and want! For example, if you are learning a new skill or a trade to make a better life for yourself, you now have an edge to get you towards your goal. With this mindset, the anxiety for the unknown is now vanished. Mentally, you now know what is coming at you with the peaks & valleys, and now you have the energy to just bust right through any uncomfortable hardships that may come. All you are doing is treading the rough waters to get towards somewhere more calm!
Journey of a Lifetime
Anything new that you take on, whether it is professionally or in your personal life, should be approached with relaxed intensity. Be serious, but also have fun with it! When you are having fun while learning, this is when you are more likely to be successful.
Laugh off your mistakes, and build on your successes. You will surely get to your desired outcome!
