"The most challenging of all resistance comes from within. The similarity with all warriors is that they’re always battling demons within themselves. It’s a constant battle, a relentless one, that has to be fought non-stop; of wanting to quit, wanting to sit on the couch, wanting to hit the snooze bar. Those small battles, these little ones have to be fought over and over and over again. Once you start winning those battles and overcoming them, more often than not, you start being able to see something be forged within you. Being able to see the potential for greatness, to be epic, to be unique, to be original, and perhaps do something that’s never been done before."
