Trying to achieve something out of our comfort zone can be a daunting task. Every excuse in the book comes up. But if we rise above, we can see the next step quite clearly. Often we need to pull out a whole new level of intensity from the depths of our being. And we need to let go of what pulls us downward or away from it. Working towards it without attachment to results. Being ok with rejection or failure is a great practice. Keep trying. Success of any kind may take some time, but it's well with the realm of possibility. But only if we immerse ourselves in it.
One step at a time ... arise. As Buddha said "Drop by drop the pot is filled".
