You've decided to go for it and do something life-changing. Adrenaline is pumping as enthusiasm and an energetic light emanates from your being. You've decided to do that thing you've always wanted to do. You're stoked! You're pumped! You're rearing to go! Let's do this! All these great plans and thoughts for your future are all running through your head, a million miles a minute. So now the work begins. The hard work. The work that requires perseverance, persistence, and grit. That work can knock the enthusiasm with which you began your journey right out of you. Ka-PUT! That work wears you down. Wears you out and makes you question whether you can make it to the light at the end of the tunnel. This is where it is critical to know why you decided to go for it anyway. This is where knowing why you started can save your journey. As you begin the journey of achieving a goal you've set for yourself, know exactly why you're doing.
