It's easy to begin. You are bright eyed, bushy tailed and ready to make some changes. Things grow difficult once the initial excitement wears off and doubt settles in. It becomes evident that this thing you set out to do is hard and you begin to question whether or not you are up for the challenge. This is when you need a reminder to stay strong, to keep going despite the roadblocks you encounter.
I like to peek at our "Keep Going" Manifestation Tattoo when I'm in the middle of a particularly tough session at the gym. Generally it takes 40 seconds into a plank for me to decide that I have had enough. My arms are on the brink of giving out, my abs are a quivering mess and I want nothing more than to recline into the solace of a child's pose. It is at this very moment that I need a visual reminder to pull me through the rest of my workout. Seeing the words keep going pressed into my wrist reminds me that my goal is larger than the burn of a 60 second plank.
If you are currently working towards a goal that is important to you, keep on charging ahead. Why let a bad case of the middles get you down? Keep going. You have your own personal victory to win.
