When a soldier trains, he understands that it is a matter of life and death. He knows that his hard work and practice may be the very thing that keeps him alive, allows him to take his stand and fight the battle. The soldier may not know if the battle is tomorrow or never coming, he trains the same.
We don't have that same sense of urgency. Our battles don't seem to hang on the precipice of life and death.
But how many lifetimes have we let pass? How many moments do we let slip away? How many days, weeks, months and years?
Train with the intensity, precision and focus of a well-trained soldier.
