Performing at your highest level should bring you greater gains. The more you push yourself, the better you will get at what you’re aiming to achieve. Not pushing yourself until your broken; pushing until you’re in that zone of your body wanting you to quit, and your mind starting to play tricks on you.
Don’t let your mind take you in the opposite direction of greatness. Lean into the moment and embrace it. It will only get easier when things get harder.
Explore your boundaries, and find out what you are made of. Greater horizons are in front of those who want it. You might be surprised who you really are. When you push yourself in the right direction, you’ll find out who that person really is that you stair into the mirror and see. Keep moving.
