That's right. It doesn't matter if you're facing a grueling hike, an impending lay-off, or a party that you're dreading attending.... as long as you're prepared and ready to face the challenge, you'll be able to succeed - or at least get through without inordinate suffering. It's like when you're running: If you decide you're going to go out and run 6 miles, you lace up your shoes, steel yourself, and slay that 10-K. But if you decide you're only going to run 3 miles, you can't run a nano-second over 30 minutes. So there ya have it. Go out and expect things.
