Have you ever wanted a/to/to be/the X and told yourself “but that’s not possible.”?
“Y did it, though!” – someone offers.
“But I’m not Y. It was easy for Y.” – you reply.

Yes, it’s hard. Otherwise it would not be worth pursuing, would it? How about being that one guy who had a huge disadvantage, but did it anway.
