Endurance: the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; especially : the ability to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.
Every morning when I wake up I tell myself, "climb the mountain." Not much time is spent trying to figure out how big, how many steps or how many days. The focus is on climbing. The mental challenge is the discovery of a false peak. There's also the slips and the falls. How does one stay on the journey in the face of setbacks? The answer is endurance. It's the refusal to accept defeat. It's knowing that life is all about the journey which includes every peak and every valley. I urge you to climb the mountain. Have a great day.
