You have to be in it purely for the love of the sport or you will quit, Iv seen hundreds of guys come and go in my time here. The passion for it needs to be so great that there is no amount of setbacks that can stop you. You have to be in it for the long haul, I started late in the US but I’ve still had 8 years of knock backs. I’m no where near where I want to be yet but I love the process and I’m still here powering stronger than ever!!
