"My experience living in the wilderness, mountain climbing and endless hours doing laps in the pool also feels super relevant to this. You don't think about how far away or how hard it will be or how long it will take to climb a mountain; you simply take a step, then another, then another. And one step you look up and realize you are at the top of the mountain, and it's all socked in with clouds :) When was the moment of victory? When did you "do it?" Perhaps each step is its very own victory!
