If you have a long term goal,
which requires you to take many small steps,
you will be tested.
The good news is that,
knowing you will be tested,
you can prepare for it.
You can take some extra steps now,
so that on the day you are tested,
you only need to hold your ground.
Or you can take a hard look in the mirror now,
and agree with yourself that on the day you are tested,
you will take a step anyway.
Or you can decide now,
that it is ok to stand still,
that some days are more difficult than others,
and feel ok with it on the day that you are tested.
Whatever you choose,
the key is to prepare now,
because if you have a long term goal,
you will be tested later.
