The prize I am referring to is the process you must undergo to reach your goal. We are often so focused on the destination that when the going gets tough we want to bail.
The process is a moment to moment rededication to your goal.
When you set a goal, you make a commitment to reach your goal. The word “commitment” can feel intimidating because we are afraid we might fail.
There are days I feel overwhelmed when I think of the 30-day commitment I set in motion. But if I know I can rededicate at anytime, it reminds me I have a choice. I am not a victim of circumstance.
I could have easily told myself that I will be too busy the next three days working, planning for an event, and pet sitting to follow through with my 30-day challenge.
Whatever you label as a distraction is only a perception
Have you ever noticed that when you TRULY commit to something, others will do what they can to support you, and some will even join you?
The only thing that will break your commitment are the thoughts you tell yourself.

When I was done with my practice, I joined them in their practice, a walk with occasional leg lifts.
