Staying motivated beyond a certain point can get exhausting.
Take a breather.
Don't force yourself to emulate everyone else.
Follow your heart.
If the activity makes you happy, you will excel.
Don't feel defeated by your competition.
You have a spark in you that makes you different.
Visualize your victory continuously.
It IS easy.
You just need to stay focussed.
Ask yourself why winning is so important to you.
Carry a little something on your person that will remind you of your goal.
Each time you see it, feel the tiredness getting washed away.
Let it feel like little drops of icy-cool water falling upon your face.
You have a journey to complete.
Keep the FIRE burning.
