The #1 Reason Why People Give Up

The #1 reason why people give up is due to what they are focused on. Most people focus on how far they still have to go to reach their goal, and by continually looking at how far they have to go they get deterred because it can seem like it is still a long ways away, and they never see the steps they have taken to bridge the gap between where they were and where they want to be. It is important to not only look ahead, but to also reflect on how far you have come. Life and sports is a process, if you are always focused on the end point, you will never get there, as your goals will constantly change. It is like this never ending path. It is important to know where we want to go, but it is important to also take time to celebrate and look at what has already been accomplished.

So take a moment today to reflect on how far you have come. And feel good about the progress you have made, this will fuel you for continuing to do the work that is necessary for reaching your next goal.
