The most difficult part of any challenge is the first few steps, before you gain the momentum you need to complete the task.
This is where the venture becomes exciting, and having completed the challenge, you feel great within yourself. That is where most of us want to be – feeling good within ourselves, boosting our self-esteem, improving our self-worth and receiving recognition for our success.
