Motivation RSS

Most of us have an unspoken reason for pushing ourselves to our limits over and over again. A reason that strongly resonates with them. For some, it’s an outlet, a challenge, an adrenaline rush. Others find it’s a way to channel aggression, a form of therapy or meditation, a way to calm their demons.So why do it? For many, it’s a necessity.

Take a look at any success story over the course of recorded history and you’ll find that it wasn’t developed overnight. It also sure as shit wasn’t without its batches of failures and losses either. Everyone sees the big spotlight on successful careers and what was accomplished, but no one takes a look at what it took to get there. It’s easy to pass over the months of failures, eating rice because it’s cheap, selling possessions to get by, scrutinized by your so-called “friends,” or limited sleep because of the fear of quitting keeps you up.
