Personally, on most days, I find it a challenge to put one foot in front of the other. 
Once the effort is mustered to do so, I typically trip over them. 

I came across this quote and it spoke to me.  Maybe it will will speak to you as well.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. 
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. 
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. 
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

- Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States of America
