Question of the day: "Why do you always do things you don't like to do?" As a young man I had tons of fears, lacked confidence and had low self-esteem. Feeling that way made me jump to conclusions. Without testing yourself, there can be no testimony. Failure built more focus, determination and resolve than I ever had. Every hurdle in my life forced me to jump higher. Jumping higher made me better. Just like you need to push your muscles past the point of exhaustion and pain if you want to build strength, your will needs to be tested to its breaking point. By no means am I saying to push yourself to a point that is dangerous. It's the fight that makes you stronger. If you take the easy road, you get easy results. You don't expect anything of yourself. If you take the hard road and you make yourself get through it, you will expect more out of your everyday life. Of course, you'll suffer and it will be painful, but you can always take a suck it up (SIU) pill, and you don't even need a prescription for it! Choosing the easy path isn't real motivation. It's not enough. If you're going to sustain and build on that mental toughness, you need to fuel yourself with the kind of passion that will keep you going through all the hardships and pain that will greet you on your way to the top of the mountain.
