Succeeding in anything is not an easy thing. It calls for persistence, sacrifice, and determination. Sometimes, you may lose a close friend, death of a loved one, or a spouse leading to negative energy, but you must keep moving until you realize your goal. Stephen Detoma is a good example of how you can convert a negative emotion and persist until you succeed.
In this episode of Fight to Finish podcast, we host Stephen Detoma. Detoma will share his experience in the GORUCK community and how he dealt with the loss of a close friend.
