Keep the Hammer Close

Iron Sharpens Iron. We cannot deny this. It has always been that way. Always will.

When you drift away from iron.. we become soft.

We have to keep the Hammer close by and continue to forge our minds and body.

Just when you think you cannot rise to the next level – that is when you dig down and surprise yourself.

You grow 1% for that day and become better than before.

When you stay close to the Iron — everything becomes clear.

Your goals seem closer. Your vision is brighter.

Things seem to go your way as others step forward to help you.

Stay close to the hammer and continue to push yourself to the next level 1% daily.

SGPT Homework: Where is the iron in your life? You know deep down where it is – you need to gravitate towards there. Embrace the iron. Let the hammer forge you. Do not be afraid. Relax and know that you will be better in the end.
