As a law student, Carita embarked on her second life challenge. She could
have been content with her first job out of school, but her vision for what
she wanted to pursue in life quickly became clear. She left her stable job
to chase the new dream; bringing everything back to the starting line.
Adjusting to the new lifestyle of a law student not only brought countless
new learning opportunities, but also the lingering fear of failure.
Carita's began a routine. On her daily runs, she would push negative
thoughts out and invigorate herself with Sisu in her heart. She sought
motivation by reciting inspiring sayings in her mind as she runs.
"THERE IS NO
YOU HAVE TO
IS THE GREATEST METAPHOR FOR LIFE,
BECAUSE YOU GET OUT OF IT
WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT."
"IN THE MIDDLE
OF DIFFICULTY LIES
FROM WHAT YOU CAN DO.
IT COMES FROM OVERCOMING
THE THINGS YOU ONCE THOUGHT
"THERE ARE NO
"YOU CAN'T HAVE
TOMORROW IF YOU'RE
"I DON'T STOP
WHEN I'M TIRED,
I STOP WHEN
BELONGS TO THOSE WHO
BELIEVE IN THE BEAUTY OF
"THERE IS NO SUBSITUTE
FOR HARD WORK."
As she reaches the end part of her favorite running path, she views her
surroundings from a new light. They look more beautiful, more meaningful, and
help shape her desire to persevere. Every run becomes new motivation.
