Loyalty to the Mission | Spartan Way #14

Are you always 1 step shy from finishing your “mission”? 1 step short of achieving your goals? Today Zach Even-Esh tells you how you can make it over the finish line using advice he originally absorbed from "Rogue Warrior" author, Dick Marcinko  Listen, then start taking pride in the challenges while turning your obstacles into opportunities.
