The Cost of Ambition

Updated: Jun 26, 2020

The alarm goes off. Your day begins. It's still dark outside.

You think, ''do I really have to.'' Inner you says ''Yes! Rise and grind, girl.''

I'm not a morning person.

But it has to get done.

Training. Work day. More training.

It's 8:30pm and you're still in the gym on a Sunday evening, thinking ''What am I even doing here?'' Inner you says ''Cause you've got work to do.''

It's a constant brain-battle, between your mind and body.

You know you need to do those early mornings, those late nights.

Those extra training sessions.

The active recovery.

The rehab.

The gruelling sports massages and acupuncture sessions to stay uninjured.

The Friday nights spent at the gym, instead of at the club with your mates.

You need to Work multiple jobs: to sustain this life.

Because you're not an average human.

You're a person who won't settle for a mediocre life

You crave something more.

Something extraordinary.

And you'll do everything it takes to get there.

If you can resonate with this mind-play.

Maybe not resonate directly to lifestyle , as maybe your goal isn't physical, like mine. Maybe you are studying to better your work life.

Maybe you are working your butt off, in a job you aren't necessarily passionate about, to better your passions in life.

To better someone else's life that you are responsible for.

Or simply to just get by.

Whatever you're doing.

I encourage you to keep going.

Never stop the grind.

Every step you aim to better yourself, every step you are closer to those goals.

Never settle less, than the life you expected of yourself.

It will all be worth it, one day soon enough. You'll know why you had to go through it all.

Until then, trust the process.

You got this.

Until next time's thoughts...

Keep Dreaming & Believing,

Xx Lani
