You have to want something to make it happen. You have to work. You have to give everything to achieve even the smallest thing. Sometimes this means failure. Sickness. Strife.
To some this comes as a door blocking any attempt to get better, to progress past the point they know they should be at, but with no knowledge or drive to do it.
For others it is a challenge, a door that needs to be picked to show us what lies behind with the treats of victory and progress behind it.
Getting past that door takes commitment. Time on wheels. Time out in the dark, the rain, the cold. It gives you the edge. Puts you across the line first. With everyone else looking like they are still behind the door.
What did you commit to last in your training?
