“There is scarcely any passion without struggle.”
– Albert Camus
Struggle has a bad rap. If asked, most of us would likely opt against struggle, preferring to avoid it if we can.
Yet, at the same time, we can’t seem to escape it. Struggle is everywhere. Unavoidable.
Many of us are familiar with struggle as a part of our lives. We understand that anything worth having requires a level of hard work and consistency. Much more, it’s reinforced through our parents, authority figures and general society.
We’re told to work hard and put our nose to the grindstone. 52% of us are dissatisfied with our jobs yet we still stay in them. When something takes longer or more work than we expect, we’re told it’s part of the game and that dues need to be paid.
