“One word: ‘Fight.’ Anyone can do it when it feels good. When you’re hurting, that’s when it makes a difference, so you have to keep fighting.”
Why do you work so hard? What is that drives you to get out of the bed in the morning? On the bad days, the tough workouts, the days where you are hurting but you choose to keep fighting, what is it that motivates you?
Knowing the answer before those days happen, and they will happen, is critical. It will be the rock that you anchor on when the tough days come. In searching for my quote this morning I also found this one:
“Burnout is when long term exhaustion meets diminished interest.”
Burnout happens when you don’t have that driving goal or objective clearly defined. It is the difference between good and great. What makes you get up and fight? Even when you are hurting?
