Remember, high performance is tough. 

Not tough because it is difficult. But, like life, requires constant engagement and active participation.

There are many which seek the same victorious outcome as you. Many who are training hard to see it so. Ready and focused for their next shot to beat you to the finish line.  

And there are some who are erroneously focused on shallow things and will not be ready when their moment is upon them. Void this trap. Do not disrespect your efforts by worrying about superficial matters. 

You must hold yourself to high account.

You must be demanding. Stern. Aggressive. Honest. Intense. True. Audacious. Excited.

It will be hard. You will slip. You will backslide. It will not come easy. You will strike out many times. But when you break through, then every ounce of effort spent will be worth it. 

Consider the counsel of Bruce Lee : 

Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do. There are no limits, but there are plateaus. You must not stay there, you must go beyond them. [To grow] a man must constantly exceed his level.
