The road uphill

When the road is uphill, it’s better not to turn back. Instead, keep your head down and do your work. There is a greater pride in every step taken.

Perhaps you are running against the wind, but don’t let the wind take you down. Use it to dry your sweat. Think that it’s cuddling you on your way, so you are no longer alone.

Don’t beat yourself up. Don’t trust that part of you saying, “This was a bad idea”.

Focus on the round of applauses you will get on the top of the hill. You don’t need many fans to start your climb.

You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
