We live in a world where a lot of people desire immediate results and instant success. We’ve gotten to the point where everyone is focused on a sprint, when it’s really a marathon. I remember the days when I desperately wanted to be sponsored by big-time companies. I wanted it to happen immediately. I felt that I had the accolades and resume to acquire support from companies like Nike and JBL. What I quickly realized is that it would take much more than medals and records. It would take a bit of work, and it would also require much patience. Always know that, great things require great labor.
