How do we push ourselves past the breaking point while everything we are faced with tells us it can’t be done?
All things of value come with a cost. This cost is essential because without it there is no triumph, no victory. The pain we feel in a stretch of a race where the path is dark and there is no one around for you to consume their energy is what is needed to be felt for you to become a victor. Every time we conquer pain it adds another plate to our armor, another layer of skin to our backs.
As I experience pain, I realize that pain is temporary. I also know that if I ever were to give up tomorrow would be much more painful than anything else I could have done. The pain is temporary but quitting lasts forever.
