A prerequisite for growth

Life is difficult.

This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult--once we truly understand and accept it--then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.

- M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Traveled

Great quote. Check out Chapter 1 of Mesillas Yesharim. The RAMCHAL's view is about the same.
Life is not easy, it's full of tests.
