To Ranger Up is to dig deep inside yourself and find energy and strength that most people don’t have. You dig just a little bit deeper. You find something in you that shouldn’t be there. Your body shouldn’t be able to keep moving, but it does—because it has to.
It’s beyond toughen up or harden up. No matter how many times you have to search for it, you’re going to find it. Because you’re a vet. Because you’re a cop. Because you’re a firefighter. Because you’re EMS. Because you have to. Because people are counting on you. Because if you don’t push now, are you going to be able to push when it matters?
