The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching– John Wooden
…Maybe we’re far from our attainment point we’ve set for mid July, but we can see the progress we’re making and the distant horizon isn’t looking so distant anymore…
…Or maybe we’re realizing we’ve overshot what we believed was possible, we’ve had to re-assess and re-configure and the road towards attainment is looking more tumultuous than ever before…
What do we do now?
It’s actually quite simple…you just…keep…going!
Don’t give up. Don’t give in. You are not a quitter and you are a different person today than you were 6-weeks ago. You have proven that not only to yourself, but your accountability partner, your coaches and your community. You are stronger, more confident, willful and more capable than ever before!
The steps you have taken to get where you are today, now looking back, seem like huge leaps and bounds.
The only thing that can set you back now is a decision to stop. A decision driven by negative self-talk, impatience or immaturity. At the end of the day, this is giving up. Waving the white flag. Quitting. Behemoths don’t quit. Your community, your coaches and your psyche won’t allow it.
You made the decision to CHANGE at the start of 2017 and wow, what progress you’ve made since then. Why stop now? Honestly, there’s no good reason to. You’ll slip up from time to time and failure will show its face, it’s part of the process and its called life. However, you are more resilient and more motivated than ever to dust yourself off, pick yourself up and continue forward with intention, aggression and sheer determination. Now, the only thing standing between you and your potential is time. Believe that and just…keep…going!
