RISE AND SHINE.
6a.m and your hands can’t make it to the alarm clock.
The voices in your head are telling you that it’s too early,too dark and too cold to get out of bed.
Aching muscles still lie in rebellion, pretending not to hear what your brain is commanding them to do.
A legion of voices are shouting at your conscience. Yelling at you to hit the snooze button and go back to dreamland.
But you didn’t ask for their opinion. The voice you chose to listen to is one of the finest. The voice which told you to set an alarm in the first place. The one which echoed the reason why you are on this earth to you when you woke up.
So sit up and put your feet in the ground because we’ve got work to do.
WELCOME TO THE GRIND, for what is each day but a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way.
Ten thousand streams spread out like a river delta before you, each one promising the least resistance. Thing is, you’re headed upstream. And you make that choice when you decide to turn your back on what’s comfortable and safe and what’s somehow called common sense.
From there, it only gets tougher. So make sure this is something connected to your heart. Because the easy way out will always be there,ready to wash you away.
With each step comes the decision to take another. You’re on your way now but this is no time to dwell on how far you’ve come.
You’re in a fight against an opponent you can’t see but you can feel them down your neck.
You know what that is? That’s YOU.
Your doubts,your fears,your insecurities all line up like a firing squad ready to shoot you out of the sky.
But don’t lose heart. Although they’re not easily defeated, they’re far from invincible.
Remember this is the GRIND, where you and only you are supposed to win but that depends on whether you’re going to fight till the end.
