Do You Have What it Takes?
I want to challenge everyone reading this to raise the bar in their lives.
It's easy to get comfortable with where you're at. It's easy to go by day by day, get into our comfort zones, and then just stop. We stop putting in all the work that we used to put in and simply settle.
It takes a special kind of person to keep moving forward. It takes a special kind of person to raise the standards they hold themselves to continuously. It's that kind of person who leaves a mark on the world.
Do you have what it takes?
Challenge yourself constantly. Don't become complacent! When you feel comfortable, that's a sign that you need to push yourself to greater heights. No matter how phenomenal or incredible you are, I know for a fact that you can get better every single day.
Give more to yourself. Give more to yourself physically, spiritually, and mentally. Don't give up on trying just because you feel as though you've won! When you feel higher than you ever have in your life, you are at a better place than ever to go to the next level.
There are no shortcuts to the top. Any destination worth reaching is going to take a tough climb along a hard path. You will have detours, obstacles, and roadblocks. You know what they say: If it was easy, everyone would do it.
How badly do you really want it?
I'll tell you something right now: if you don't really want to take your life to the next level, it won't happen. If you can't fully commit, real success will be impossible.
Reach for more! There will be pitfalls, but often, those pitfalls will transport you to exactly where you need to be. Those pitfalls will teach you, give you perspective, and help you become a stronger person. Cherish those pitfalls! Be thankful for your struggles.
Excitement wears off. Motivation fades over time. Discipline beats passion any day of the week. If you are the kind of person who is able to learn from struggle and keep constant discipline even throughout the difficult things in life, you will be successful. It's that simple! The way is not easy, but it isn't rocket science, either.
Are you fully committed? Are you ready to be worn out mentally, spiritually, and physically? You need a marathon mindset. You need to go the extra mile. You need to know that you can conquer any struggle whatsoever.
Cultivate so much strength in your heart that you can do anything. Life won't always be sweet. Not everything will go your way. You are going to make mistakes, and the path to your destination will be full of roadblocks. Life is hard, and you've got to be ready to go the extra mile if you want to succeed.
It all starts with you.
