Don't Rush the Process
I love to attack what I think is impossible. I want to show myself I can do it because it is going to help me grow.
People expected me to start running right away. However, before I get started, I need to prepare my body and make sure I am ready when I do start running.
Throughout my football career, I never missed a game. I always made sure I took care of the fundamentals. Taking care of your body can go a long away. I knew, if I didn't take care of the small things, an injury was much more likely.
I always tell people that way too many people right now try to elevate our lives too quickly. You need to take care of the foundation before you can grow upwards.
People always want to skip the process, because it's hard. However, when you skip the process, you won't be ready when you try to move forward. This is valuable advice for every part of life.
The first step to elevation is taking care of your foundation.
Think about a building, they are made up of small pieces. Build up the small pieces of your life and concentrate on the foundation to build you up. Every piece is important to get where you want to go. You can do this, it all starts with you.
