Accomplish your goals
Muhammad Ali famously said that he hated every minute of the training it took to win the world championship.
“𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙄 𝙨𝙖𝙞𝙙, 𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙩. 𝙎𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙡𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚 𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙢𝙥𝙞𝙤𝙣,’” he said.
I think about that sometimes when all my hard work seems so pointless or boring, or frustrating.
Instead of letting that highjack my enthusiasm, I imagine what my life will be like when I reach my goal.

Go ahead and try it. Don’t briefly think, like, “Yeah, that’ll be great.”😵💫
Fully invest your imagination. Get specific about the senses – touch, sight, smell, etc.

Let’s get real! Fire up that imagination. It’s sooooo close to “inspiration.”
