Whether it’s weight loss, fitness, health, relationship or career, If you are working towards your goal, dream and vision so fiercely, you will come to a place where you are challenged, stopped and nearly defeated.
No matter what the area of your goal is, challenges, failures and defeats are inevitable.
When you are tempted to quit, know that they are there to separate the true gems from the rest.

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up.”
