Accept the fact that you will encounter low points — often devastating lows when you feel you can’t go on. No matter how well you prepare, you will likely encounter moments when you doubt your ability to succeed, or perhaps even to take another step. It’s not a lot different from life. The most important element is to remember that such setbacks will inevitably occur. They always do. If you’re honest set backs will inevitably occur. They always do. If you’re honest with yourself beforehand, you will have an easier time dealing with these low points. When I hit a low point, I use a technique that I simply call “baby steps.”

Just stand up and run to that bush ten yards up the road, I told myself. Don’t think about the mileage still ahead. Be in the moment; put one foot in front of the other to the best of your ability. Take baby steps. [Dean Karnazes]
