Lasting motivation is found in your purpose. In your personal mission statement. In your why. If that purpose, that why, that mission does not cast a big enough vision for your mind and heart you will compromise. Never forget that sometimes you must lose a battle to win the war and sometimes you will feel like the one losing when you are actually the one winning. Chase Perfection (Jesus) & catch excellence. Press on Soldier!
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness & peace for those who have been trained by it" Hebrews 12:11
