Hurdles

Why does it always seem to be, that at the very end of accomplishing a goal, there's just that one last little hurdle to get over?

When you're so close to achieving something big, that you've worked and worked towards (for possibly a very long time), life likes to throw a wrench in your plan. That's just the way it works. 

I submitted my package to CAPPA four days ago. Today I got an email saying that they had received it, but something was not entirely correct and I need to complete another portion, scan it, and email it in.

Just when I thought I was done with it, that last little hurdle decides to pop up! It's definitely a few more hours of work to do towards the certification. But I gotta do it! I am determined and this last hurdle is going to be jumped over!

When this happens I think it's super important to realize what it is you're trying to accomplish in the first place.
Remind yourself of your goal and how hard you've already worked. And then persist! 

This last little bit will make your victory all the more sweet.
