Have you ever been a part of a winning team? You know, those times when results just seem to flow. Money, success, or a winning streak…when you’re in the groove it just seems to work.

It’s in these moments when you collect the harvest.

Other times, life is more like clearing land. Out behind your house there are massive, gnarly trees as far as you can see. Every day you bust your butt and end each day tired, exhausted, and at times frustrated.

When life gets tough don’t stop doing the work.

At times, we can all have the tendency to give up, quit, and leave. What if you pushed through the pain and exhaustion, even when you didn’t want to? Would you be better off?

Would the tenacity to work through the pain make you strong? Would it give you greater empathy for others who struggle for their dreams? Would it give you emotional resilience? That kind of fight in your soul attracts opportunity like moths to a flame.

When life gets hard, don’t stop doing the work.

Your dreams are on the other side of the resistance.
