Behind Every Medal, There is a Struggle

They say that in success, there are no shortcuts. If you want to be on top, you must undergo training or experience sacrifices. Do not just think of the goal but think about how you will achieve it. Yesterday, the first-ever Olympic gold medal was won by a Filipino weightlifter. Back in 2016, she also made history by bringing an Olympic silver medal after 20 years.

She may have failed in her first attempt to bring the highest achievement for her country but the fire in her heart to reach the top once more made her victory sweeter. We might be amazed by her gold medal but what will amaze you more is the process, her struggle.

Nothing is certain unless it happens which is similar to growth. You are still growing into something, it may not be for a podium finish but closer to something new.
