This can be <em>really</em> challenging some days, but it always helps me refocus. <br><br>Professional athletes have to spend hours and hours in gym and keep their diets in check to perform their best during their games. Are they just more motivated individuals, or is there something else that keeps them going day after day?<br><br>Entrepreneurs who are in the beginning stages of building a business hit many challenges and often work excess hours in pursuit of their dream with little to no reward in the initially. Where does that drive come from?<br><br>Cancer patients undergoing chemo with grim outlooks can be found inspiring those around them with a message of hope and perseverance. <br><br><u><strong>I believe those people are implementing the following three things:</strong></u><br><br>1. They have <em>passion</em> driving the action. <br><br>2. They don't let their emotions dictate their actions. <br><br>3. They figure out how to mentally thrive among boring, routine, and difficult times. <br><br>Each person is going to approach those three things differently, but if you can find a way to master them, you are going to thrive in your day-to-day life no matter what it throws at you. <br><br>These principles are something I talk to my clients about a lot because I'm always asking them to do things that are challenging. <br><br>I tell them to eat more vegetables and less brownies. <br><br>Move more and sit less. <br><br>Take on adventures that scare them. <br><br>Get up early. <br><br>Run faster. <br><br>Dream bigger. <br><br>If I can help clients do those three things, the healthy eating, exercise, and better habits fall right into place.<br> </div>
