…And I’m not specifically talking about physical sweat here. Sure, keeping our bodies active and in shape is important for maintaining a balanced lifestyle, but “sweat” is more than just logging miles on the treadmill or pumping iron in the weight room.
Sweat is the commitment, perseverance and exertion it takes to unlock your passions, chase after your goals and make them a reality. This kind of sweat requires a holistic connection of the mind, body and spirit working in tandem to keep you grounded, focused and tuned into those innermost desires which reveal your truest self.
After all, the dreams and pursuits that light our souls on fire and make our hearts skip a beat are the ones we have to strive the hardest for in life. It’s about the hustle, that day-to-day, moment-to-moment dedication toward bettering ourselves, choosing the difficult path of growth and introspection over the familiar road of security and comfort, doing something right now to benefit the future of humanity.
Whether your passion is advocating for social justice, campaigning for environmental awareness, promoting health and wellness, teaching the younger generation or anything in between, the most essential component to being a success, impacting others and making a difference in your life mission is to sweat. Urge yourself past the limiting thoughts or beliefs hindering your progress and jump headfirst into whatever you feel most alive doing. With a fire blazing in your spirit and sweat dripping from your forehead, you could change the world someday.
So what is the driving force in your own life? It’s time to find out and start getting sweaty!
