You’re going to make many mistakes in your life, but I think the worst mistake that you can make is to not give it your all. Die on a treadmill. Throw up at the finish line. Your body can handle it. Run through the pain because I promise that stopping hurts more than the stinging pain of being average. Let people say the venomous phrase “you can’t do it”, but never let what they say lessen your want for self-improvement. Never let go of the dream you want so badly. There will always be someone better than you are, but there will never be another person just like you. Let a fire spark in your heart, and let go of the past. Make the many defeats persuade you to try harder. Some days will be harder than other, but you will always be stronger than whatever the day will throw your way. Don’t stop until you are where you want to be.
