Do Hard Things.

+Sometimes life isn't just sunshine & daisies.
+You have to do hard things.
+You have to get up earlier than you want to get up.
+You have to give more than you get in return.
+You have to make the call you're afraid to make.
+You have to care more about others than they care about you.
+You have to invest yourself even though no one else is.
+You have to keep fighting, even when your already injured.
+You have to tell the truth, even when making up something is easier.
+You have to lead when no one else is following you yet.
+You have to stand up for your beliefs ; even though they aren't popular trends in the world.
+You have to run faster even when you're out of breath.
+You have to try & fail & try again.
+You have to be accountable for your actions, even when things go wrong.
+You have understand there is power in vulnerability.
+You have to meet deadlines that are unreasonable.
+You have to be kind to people who are cruel to you.
+You have to make mistakes & look like an idiot.
+You have to forgive ; even when they hurt you.
+You have to feel unsure & insecure ; when playing it safe seems smarter.
+You have to keep moving forward to where you want to be ; no matter what's in front of you.
You have to do hard things.
The things that no one else is doing.
Do the things that scare you.
The things that keep you wondering how much longer you are going to hold.
The things that challenge your heart & your mind.
Those are the things that build you, strengthen you, define you.
