Description

I’m not a distance runner.

When I run, the first few minutes are easy. But after a mile, it starts to hurt.

I can either stop there, or I can keep going.

When I push through the adversity, I feel like I can run forever. I hit the zone where it doesn’t hurt anymore.

The same thing happens in life.

You have to keep giving it your best even when it’s hard. You have to know that something great is waiting for you on the other side.

Everything you’re going through now is paving the way for success in your future.

On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about passion and hard work with a woman who revolutionized the dessert industry: Christina Tosi.

Christina Tosi is a chef, author, and television personality. She is the founder and owner of Milk Bar, the sister bakery to the Momofuku restaurant group, and just opened her seventeenth store. Christina is the recipient of several awards and was featured on a list of "Most Innovative Women in Food and Drink" by Food and Wine Magazine in 2014.

Christina shares that every time she gets close to a goal, she raises the bar a little higher.

She is always growing and always learning.
