It takes many swings to chop down a redwood, but quitting before it falls can leave you standing in a mess.

Sometimes in life we face challenges that seem so daunting that we hardly feel the energy to face them. For those tasks that seem to have an infinite distance to the finish line, the first question we may ask ourselves is whether it is even worth it to try.

But I’ve always learned that rewards that are worth anything in life are worth the effort, and come with sacrifice and hard work.

So, when facing these seemingly insurmountable odds, we have to remember that it’ll take a lot of time and dedication to accomplish the task, and that once we get started we should always see it through til the end. Because we could find ourselves in a mess or a situation far less desirable than the one we were in before we started.
