This is so true in whatever I do, life, relationships, career, running, you name it....
No, great accomplishments are never realized without first having to endure steep climbs, hard falls and sharp turns.
The key to your success is perseverance and focus.
Keep your focus on that which you desire to accomplish, your championship, and continually discover ways to, and ways not to, achieve your goals.
Fall down and/or get knocked down 10 times and get back up 11...,
and in so doing learn, grow and move closer to your championship."
