When we commit to the high performance journey we are committing to a life that demands hard work and self-control in pursuit of goals that are days, months, or even years away. And while we are, or can be, committed deeply to our goals there are many things that can conspire to get us off track. We have to work to make sure that we resist the urge to abandon our goals and stay on track. Persistence is key, as is the ability to cultivate and sustain our motivation. There are no secrets, we know what the risks are, we know the resources we have and it comes down to just us. It is a good feeling and one that we can go back to again and again. With persistence, we can achieve a bigger goal; a worthy endeavor for sure.
