Q – WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’VE BEEN STRIVING FOR SO LONG THAT IT SEEMS LIKE YOUR GOAL IS NEVER GOING TO SEE LIGHT?
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THE FEAR THAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO FAIL?

In the past it used to be that if it seemed like I wasn't getting anywhere, I would just end up quitting and not keep striving on and try new things.
That was then.

Now, when it seems like I've been striving for so long and nothing is happening and I won't see a change in my weight. Then I start trying new things, keep trying new ones until I find something that works.

I no longer deal with the fear of failing as there's no failure here... only a winner/loser. Even if I fall down, I don't let it bother me, I say ok, I fell down, but it's not the end of the world, I'm going to keep striving forward towards my goal.

There's persistence and then there's insanity. Persistence is an admirable quality. I am envious of those with disciplined persistence that I only seem to have when I'm begging for a foot rub.

Then there's insanity, which is what I've been doing, and that's not sustainable. One often hears the adage, "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". Well, that's not true according to Webster's, but the sentiment still applies.

Don't be afraid of upsetting the routine. One can be persistent and shake up things at the same time.

Persistence. Persistence. Persistence.

We keep hearing about how persistence is often the key to success. Simple, Give it just one more shot. And then one more. Think about the sweat and time you've committed already. You've come this far, you'd be unfair to yourself if you quit without a fight. Even if the odds are way out of your favor and you can't see how it can possibly help, reach out and take one last swing. You never know what will happen. Big, meaningful achievements don't just happen when everything goes your way. How many times have you seen tennis players make miraculous winning shots while lunging for a ball that seemed impossible to reach? Sometimes, you can find victory in the effort.
