Waking up for 6am runs is a damn pain in the arse, and that’s an understatement. When my alarm goes off at 5.50, I think to myself, “man, can I just go back to sleep? I’ll just tell Wei Hao I overslept.”
At 5.55, when my next alarm (I always set two alarms, just in case) goes off I force myself up.
“If I don’t do this today,” I tell myself, “I won’t do this any day.”
I suppose it’s the very integrity of it all. The behaving in ways consistent with the things I believe in. If I don’t push myself in the physical aspects of my life, how can I push myself in other aspects? And if I don’t push myself in general, how can I push others to greater achievement as well?
