The moment you feel defeated, you are already defeated.
You must feed your mind with positivity. Feed it daily with the people you surround yourself with, the content you consume, and the habits you form.
Everybody wants to be successful with respect to their profession, health, fitness, relationships, etc.
But hardly anyone is willing to do what it takes.
Never feel sorry for yourself. It will do you no good.
Never complain. No one wants to hear it.
Love the slow and hard stuff, not the fast and easy.
There is no value in the easy, quick, or effortless.
The value, the reward, and the contentment is in the scarcity, the struggle, and in the increase in strength.
