I happen to think there's a common misconception in our culture that states: If a road proves too difficult, then maybe "it wasn't meant to be." Instead, I happen to think the opposite might actually be true: If you are on the right path, then you're likely to face far more opposition than you ever may have imagined. I don't wish this for you. It's simply an observation.
Think about it. Every great accomplishment that has ever come about has done so against terrific opposition, not the other way around. It's historic.
