A lot of people automatically gives up once they encounter challenges especially at the early part of their career.  What they don’t know is that these challenges sometimes are blessings in disguise as it will mold your personality.

The hardest part to success is not knowing the road. As long as you set your goal then there should be no reason that you will get lost.
