In my October 4th post, “Have you Heard of the Push,” I made the claim that “The Push is the only thing that can get you through the tough times.”
This led my wife to ask, “What is the Push?” Since she’s wicked smart and asks great questions, I replied, “It’s shorthand and a great topic for another blog post.”
So here’s what I mean: The Push is a combination of your:
- Internal locus of control
- Strength and fortitude
- Belief in yourself
- Will do (not can do) attitude
- Endurance, and
In short, it’s your “I will, don’t get in my way, look out world I’m going to kick-some-butt I don’t care if it’s a little (or a lot) uncomfortable, I’m going to turn off my tv, not check my facebook or twitter account, put my shoulder to the grind and get some shit done” source of motivation and energy.
That’s The Push. It’s what separates good from great and ordinary from extraodinary. When times get tough, sometimes it’s all we have.
