I am 27, and, was relieved to see that you, for 32 years, experienced that sense that, deep down, you’d quit when things got really tough, as this is something I feel like I am still sorting out. I think there’s some definite truth to discovering the why,
I’ve (formerly) used Treehouse to add to skillsets I had given up on in college, and still faced that sense of quitting when I got confused or felt set back with a course. How do I overcome that? Is it simply a lack of WHY? I am not entirely sure—despite knowing that acquiring and growing a certain skillset could truly be life changing for me.
So, I suppose, I am left with working out the why, which, I’d hope, becomes a driver towards creating a life I want regardless of the obstacles I might run into.
