I woke up at 4 a.m. this morning with my mind racing. It felt like the activity in my brain was in the Daytona 500.

It was just another Thursday for most…but for me…it was time to take action. A good part of my journey thus far has entailed starting and stopping things very quickly. This morning just felt different…this morning I wanted to look that ‘quit’ in the eye and say “You’re just a temporary struggle…you’re a temporary hurt…if I stop now you’ll become permanent… which is the exact reason why I can’t stop and will push through.”

You see so many people quit when the going gets tough. Truth is when things get difficult…that is the exact moment when we need to grind those extra few seconds, minutes, hours…it is when the most progress is made, not only externally but internally. Quitting is easy…it’s what cowards do.

There is power in being able to look yourself in the mirror and say, “I wanted to quit today but I didn’t because I am stronger than the struggle.”

“You may see me struggle, but you will never see me quit.”

Have an awesome Thursday.
