When the going gets tough, the tough get going

ga hill

When a situation becomes difficult, strong people don’t give up; they work harder.

If you are doing bad in school you have 2 options: A) Give in and fail or B) Give it all you got.

If you are unable to grasp a concept you have 2 options: A) Give in and not learn it or B)Find a way that you can understand it.

If you are having problems with work you have 2 options: A) Give in or B) Determine the root of the problem and try to fix it.

If you are sore from the exercise you did yesterday you have 2 options: A)give in and not do anything or B) Don’t let that hold you back today.

With any type of problem you often only have 2 options: A) To fail and give up or B) Give it all you have and get er’ done!

Yesterday I participated in the Tour De North End in Rockford, IL. Although it was only about 7 miles, we averaged a pace of only 5 mph. I welcomed the slow pace since I do 12-18 mph most other days.

This morning I was as sore I could be. My neck ached, my arms ached, and my legs were sore. I had the option of getting up for the day and going to church or I could have just stayed home, staying still. I chose to get up fir the day and I am so glad that I did. It was nice to clear my mind again at Church and I knew I may not make it there the next few weeks since I am doing some Time Trials.

As with any choice you need to evaluate all the different circumstances and scenarios. What may work for one thing may not work for another. Are you choosing the best option in life for yourself or is someone else choosing for you?
