In Taoism there exists an important concept called Wu Wei which literally means non-doing. A good way to understand this concept is the idea of flow. Does a tree force itself to grow or does it grow without effort? Does a lion struggle to find lunch or is a meal provided for it courtesy of the Great Spirit? Wu Wei is action through non-action. It is placing yourself into the natural flow of life without struggle. Struggle is effort laced with negative emotions and desperation. 

If the emotions are removed then all that remains is effortless flow. Life was never meant to be a struggle. Step back take a deep breath and quietly work towards your goals. Struggle is opinion because struggle is emotion. One persons struggle may be gentle effort to another. Wu Wei. Remember it.
