Get Tough. [EPTV]

You’re probably reading this because you had the same question that we did: why have thousands of ordinary people succeeded against all odds when other people, just like them, fail? It’s a question we’ve spent 4 years and thousands of hours studying and agonizing over. But it’s a simple answer:

They “get tough.”

Now if you’ve followed us for any length of time, you know there are really 4 qualities they shared–but at the root of it, they get tough. They get tough about doing the hard things. They get tough about about living fit (physically, mentally, and financially). They toughen up and give, even when it hurts. They toughen their resolve in the face of overwhelming fear & pain.

In fact, I accomplished one of my own audacious goals a few months ago running 100 miles through the Ozark Mountains.

Sound familiar? I wrote about a few lessons that I learned a while ago. This week on The EDGY Perspective, I expound on those lessons.

Because anybody can achieve success if you’re willing to keep going.

And now I’m going for 200 miles.

What do you need to get tough about?
