Just like going for a run on a hot day, in life everybody reaches that one point. Maybe it’s the half way mark, or the very end, where you feel like death is approaching. Your heart beats faster, the sweat drips heavier, your lungs seem to have reached full capacity and begin to deflate. Your strides might even slow up a bit.
Instead of focusing on how exhausted you are, dig in. Remember why you started this journey. Think about all of the preparation that you put into that idea. The money you spent, the hearts you broke, and tears you’ve cried.
Now is not the time to stop and take a breather. You are too far ahead in the race to let up. Any slack will cost you a medal. Keep enduring, keep learning, keep trying.
The finishline is right there.
