I don’t know if you are an avid runner, but if you have ever participated in a half-marathon or marathon then you have noticed no one ever fails during the first mile.
The first mile is easy. Everyone is happy. Most people haven’t even broken a sweat.
However, the longer the race goes on the harder it gets. Runners start to wear down. Some start walking. Others drop out of the race all altogether.
The runners who finish are the ones prepared, have a “can-do” mindset, and can get past setbacks. They persevere.
This is the similar path for anyone who wants to accomplish anything of significance.
The first mile in your journey is easy, but you will experience road blocks. Things will get difficult. There will be times you feel like giving up.
However, the real magic happens the further you get into the journey. If you can persevere or maybe pivot a little, then you can create something of significance.
Whether you want to be the world’s best parent, climb the corporate ladder, create a blog or start your own business; it is possible! You just have to be ready to run that proverbial marathon.
