Every morning in the gym I set a goal on how long I am going to stay on one equipment. The the closer I get to my goal the more tired I get and start convincing myself that I should come off that particular equipment and go to the next but I choose complete my set goal. When I press through my feeling of trying to give up, and achieve my goal I feel great and motivated to move on to the next exercise. We all have moments in the process of living this life that we feel like giving up on our goals, or when we feel like all is lost and gone. These moments come with intensity and high degree of discouragement. These moments could be due to an incurable disease, financial difficulties, or relationship issues. These difficulties may defer in nature, intensity and degree, but the response should be one. This has not come to kill me but to empower me. When life closes in on you and you feel like the easiest and only option you have is to throw in the towel and give up, remember that someone has gone through the same situation and made it through. They might have climbed, crawled, cried through it but they came through anyway. So regardless of what you face today, with the right attitude you can overcome. You can brand yourself by how you overcome one set back to the other.
