Typically, the Olympic games are very motivating. They encourage athletes and couch taters alike to want to be better physically and mentally. However, the fuss this year with unsportsmanlike conduct, battles in the social media world, and complaints with how the networks are broadcasting the events can be enough to make the strongest willed person want to throw in the towel.
Times are always going to be changing and there will always be something to create controversy. Our will may be rattled but we must not let our spirit be crushed. Hop the hurdles, roll with the punches, and persevere because the one sure thing is change.
When you see your motivation lacking, let that be the exact reason you push forward. Challenges will creep into every nook and cranny of our lives. Fight the good fight and always keep trying! ~trvw
