“If we don’t become uncomfortable, we’re never going to get better.
It’s called the Overload Principle—in order to improve, athletes must continually work harder as they their bodies adjust to intensity. In other words, until it overloads you past your normal physiological and psychological tolerances, it doesn’t change you.
If we want to improve our mental game, we have to put ourselves in situations that challenge our discipline and fortitude and mental toughness. We have to seek those things out.
Things that everyone else sees as burdens, we see as opportunities.
Is it hard? Good. It’s only when it starts to get hard does it matter.
If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”
