AYD - Jan 8 2013 - How Will You Remember?

"It has to be this hard so you never, ever forget!"
- Bob Harper, Reality TV Show, The Biggest Loser, Trainer

The moral of the story.
A life lesson.
Nothing worth having comes easy.
Nothing is free.

However you have heard it said.
However the reality presented itself.
Whatever messenger it was dressed up as when it greeted you.

The gift is still the same.
The truth has to be accepted.

The first step of a life change is difficult in many ways.  Taking the next step, is a test of your desire.
Whatever it is that drives you to the land of opportunity to change, may abandon you when you realize how hard your task may be.

"Don't let the start stop you."  I heard this once.  Twice...maybe three times.  And it always makes sense.
The start of a goal, dream, task or must face difficult time, is where most wave the white flag.  The start of a dream that will require hard work and dedication... "it has to be this hard so you never, ever forget."

It is hard at the start to challenge your heart.  It gets easier, and more appreciated with every step you take thereafter...as you gaze over your shoulder and see how far you have come, and what it took to get you one step further than the last.

Difficulty is not permission to stop.  Passion does not mean you get a free pass.
How easy can you expect it to be when you start to chase a dream from a complete stand still?

What have you done that at one point in time you thought you could not do?  Anything.  Remember it. Acknowledge it.

Take a breath.  Recognize your achievements.  Press on.
Good morning.
