Nothing worth doing comes easy. Some things become more commonplace, more routine and maybe require a little less effort on your end, but that cheapens them. Some things come without any pain, without any sacrifice, without any conscious effort. Those things are almost all meaningless.
Why? If something just falls into your lap, if there was no work involved to acquire it, it loses value. By working hard for the things we want, sacrificing for the things we want, by having discipline, experiencing pain in the path to making something happen for yourself, that accomplishment gains value.
There is such a thing as going too far though. Going too far will cause resentment towards whatever it is you're working for. Don't cause yourself so much pain during the journey towards something that once you get where/what you want, all that's on your mind is how much the journey sucked. You'll spend much more time on the road than at the destination. Don't make that journey a horrible experience because it'll ruin the prize at the end.
Nothing worth doing comes easy, and while it never gets easier, it doesn't need to kill you or ruin your prize. Pace is the trick.
