Struggle.

It's no surprise that grit is what it takes to get anywhere in this world.

No life worth living will just be handed to you. That applies to your job, your family and your health.

If you want to go home at the end of the day, proud of yourself and what you have accomplished, then you are going to have to struggle.

Remember that when you walk into the gym, muttering those words of defeat, making small excuses here and there, finding places where you can just coast. Remember that when you are frustrated that you are still using a band for pullups, or you've been chasing muscle ups for years.

If you are stuck, spinning your wheels seemingly going nowhere, sit down and ask yourself this: Are you really struggling? Or are you just going through motions waiting for it to happen? Because one of those will check off your 2016 resolutions and one won't. You decide.           -JournalMenu
