You’re trying to reach another level, another caliber of work.
The first days are easy.
Motivation gets you through the pain.
But it has a limit.
The pain gets worse and the will wavers.
You tell yourself:
“Everyone needs a break”, “This Can’t be good for me”, “I’ve done enough”.
Use this as a signal that you’re reaching a higher plane.
A level where motivation won’t sustain you.
You need to gut it out.
Sit there, in pain, until it becomes the new normal.
From there, you can aim higher.
