LC Tip of the Day #215

Saturday, September 03, 2016

It's not always going to be easy or fun, but on those days when you feel like you failed, it's important to remember that the fight goes on tomorrow, whether you're ready or not. Those moments after feeling defeated are the most important moments on your journey, the ones that define who you are, how tough your spirit can be and how much you want that end goal. How you react means the difference between same old same old and greatness.

Champions aren't champions right out of the gate -- they fail over and over again and push themselves past their nagging voice saying to give it up before they can finally say they've achieved their goals. Fall four times, get up five. Remembering that the end goal tastes sweeter because of adversity and because of every hurdle will get you through the tough days and on to those bronze-that-feel-like-gold-med
al days.

    So true. One battle lost is not the loss of the war.
