Keep your eyes on the prize.
Stare down that goal.
Hold tight to the end result.
You know what... Sometimes it's actually better to look down and not up.
Take your eyes OFF the prize. Because the prize can sometimes just feel so impossible and completely out of reach.
I did that this morning. Facing another hill. I could see the top. It was too far. It was impossible. It was completely out of reach. The more I looked at the top the more I knew I couldn't do it.
So I put my head down. I didn't look up. And I watched my feet. One foot after the other. The rhythm of running. One foot after the other. One foot after the other. The rhythm of running. One foot after the ...
I'm at the top.
Now I can look up.
