The nearer the dawn the darker the night.
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (Public domain)
If you are truly pursuing one great strategic goal, and you are working with focused effort each day to achieve it, you will get there. More often than not, the tougher the roadblocks being thrown at us, the darker it appears, the nearer we are to our grand goal. That is by Design. The tougher it gets, the more strongly you must pursue your objective with force and determination!
