Don’t ever forget how hard you’ve worked to get to the point you’re at right now. All of those moments you chose to take the hard path over the easy path; it will all pay off. It truly will. Just be patient.
Motivation is broken into two parts: wanting something and believing you can achieve it; you need both to be successful in whatever it is you’re aiming for. Always believe in yourself. Call me crazy, but I think that is more powerful than anything.

Think about what it is that drives you. That motivates you. That one thing that makes you want to get up earlier and go down later. If you know what that is, keep at it and allow it to push you forward. If you haven’t found it yet, it’s okay. Keep looking and be patient. It’ll come.
