Here for me it's all about "daring to challenge difficulties" and "seeing it through to completion". Sometimes in the middle of our goal journey life can throw as not just a shit sandwich but a whole shit feast! Storms can come from seemingly no-where. The grit to continue and see it through can't be overestimated.
