Many hope things will happen. But clearly hope is not a strategy, not for success or marathon.
Brene Brown, professor at University of Houston and author of the book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead, explains,
Hope is a function of struggle.
I like Brown’s version. Struggle brings hope. Hope is earned through struggles. Hence the 20 weeks of marathon training is the price for marthoners.
Want to have a good marathon? Stop hoping and start running.
