It starts with the typical “Dream”. Emotions build up in you, giving you enormous amounts of energy. You feel awake, happy, alive. And you are ready for action.
From day one, you go in full throttle, with so much power and drive, nothing can stop you, it’s only a matter of time before you reach the Dream.
You think you’re above those who don’t strive to reach their dreams, or worse yet, those who don’t have dreams.
But wait a minute…
Guess what! You’re not that special.
See, you failed to notice that your engine consumes energy really fast. It won’t be long before you get out of your euphoric state, and all of a sudden, the road to your dream doesn’t seem as colorful as it used to be. It’s now a grey, dreadful, and traitorous road.
When you reach that stage, when fun activities become chores, you have to realize something.
You’ve now reached an important stage in your journey.
This is the deciding moment that would determine whether or not this dream of yours will become a reality.
It is now a game of endurance, patience, and commitment.
The fight has just started. And you must be prepared for tougher fights each step of the road.
Will you be a crybaby and run away from the first slap?
Or will you endure all the punches and kicks, and beat that dream to a pulp?
It’s all up to no-freakin’-body but you!
So what’s it gonna be, soldier?
