When I went to college I initially wanted to be a lawyer. The thing is, I didn't realize just how hard it would be. I believe that the most difficult part about being or becoming a lawyer is dedication. Lawyers spend a lot of time working, reading, preparing briefs, going over legal documents, preparing for cases, etc. It is important for anyone who is considering on being a lawyer to understand that it is going to require a lot of sacrifices due to the amount of time spent working. This job requires a great deal of commitment, but I believe you and anyone else can handle it. Just like with any other job, you'd have to learn how to balance this commitment with the other areas of your life. Although this may seem dauting, I wouldn't allow it to discourage you. If being a lawyer is what you want to do, go for it. I know that you'll be great, but just remember you have to be dedicated.
