We often romanticize success as this "rah-rah", "you can do it" type of feeling. In fact, to achieve success, it is usually quite the opposite. The greatest athletes and high achievers are trained to believe that they can succeed regardless of circumstance, in the most difficult of moments.
Do they have doubts or insecurities at times? Sure, they are human. However, that doubt fuels determination, direction, and focus.
We have to be prepared for the darkest days, not the lightest. We have to be prepared for the rainiest days, not the prettiest. The true mark of success is when you can say, "I don't know what today is going to bring, but I know I can handle anything that comes my way."
