I used to put time limits on when I was supposed to become a millionaire or happy with myself in life. After awhile you learn to just appreciate the work and do the best you can. This is not to give you room to slack off, but to put more work in.
Make an effort to stop looking at how long it takes you to reach the destination, but the process. When you finally make it you will be happy with yourself and your efforts.
It takes skill to never give up no matter what it looks like right now. It takes skill to get up early and stay up late. No one is going to do it for you, period. Your sad stories mean nothing to the guy who worked 18 hours a day for 20 years straight before he got his break.
