Look at your reflection in the mirror and tell your self a story, tell the truth; tell yourself, of what you are doing and why you are doing it, why the work, why the sacrifice. Speak of the dream, give direction to where you’re going. Tell of the promise land just beyond the chaos and high above your problems and struggles. Go on about your unshakable courage and and belief in yourself. Assert your desire, and strengthen your will to succeed. Tell of how certain you are you can win; explain the feeling in your bones of the impending victory. Tell yourself it will be.
