Physical training has always been the place I’ve sought to develop mental toughness.

I’ve never understood the strategies or supplements that encouraged a new way to limit the uncomfortable nature of hard work.

“Drink this special shake and you’ll never feel tired again.”

Or “if you think positive you’ll be able to mask the pain”

The irony is that if that actually worked it would take away the very thing that makes training great.

Without struggle there is no growth.

It’s training that forces us to dig deep within our souls and see what we are truly made of. Don’t run away from it, rather, hope and pray those moments come.

It’s those instances you build strength both inside and out.
