It’s not easy. It’s not easy waking up everyday in the pursuit of being a better person than you were yesterday. It’s not easy chasing after your dreams. If it were easy, I guess that everyone would be doing it.
Whatever it is that gets you fired up about life, going after it is one of the most challenging, yet rewarding journeys you will embark on. The potential for challenges and rewards lie around every single turn you take. It takes a special type of commitment to be able to accept the harsh reality that the rewards will often come at the expense of temporary discomfort and suffering.
When the journey does get difficult and it feels as if it keeps knocking you down on your knees, remember why you started in the first place. Remember back to what it was that lit the fire in your soul and led you down the path that you are so adamant on pursuing. Remember how you envisioned the rewards of your pursuit would feel and hold onto that. Imagine how incredible it is going to feel when you do accomplish what it is you set out to accomplish.
Even the best of us need this reminder every now and again. It’s a long uphill battle to the top, and remembering why you started can be the motivation that you need to keep going when it feels like you can’t take another step. Know that your journey is completely worth it and enjoy it every single step of the way.
