We push ourselves everyday to get used to the grind….to improve.
We persist to form habits that allow us to feel good about ourselves and keep us motivated.
The daily grind doesn’t make it easier…it makes us better. It makes us stronger.
Persistence is the inner strength that carries us through the hard times. The times we want to quit…to give up…to lay down and surrender.
Life throws up curveballs…sadness, laziness, exhaustion…the devils way of telling us we aren’t good enough…that we don’t deserve it. That inner demon wants to throw us off course and shatter our dreams. Who will win today?
Push through and reap the rewards…the mental and physical rewards…It won’t make it easy…but it will make you strong.

Persist It will get easier…because you are strong!
