The Work Starts Now (#353)

It’s important to recognize how far we’ve come. We can use gratitude when looking back at the adversities we overcome and the lesson’s we have learned. To get where we want to go, what we have done isn’t enough.

Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

We must continue. We must keep fighting, keep moving towards our goals. Then we can use gratitude for what keeps us going.
