In the majority of cases, our situation and/or injury is not special. Someone is or has gone through it and a lot of times they are training right beside you and you’d never know it. Unfortunately, I’ve had tons of students quit over the years because in their minds, their injury or circumstance was “the worst.” And, for that person it became OK to quit because they can use that injury or situation to rationalize their quitting spirit. “I had to quit because…..” Don’t be confused, you quit because you made the decision to, that’s it . The first time you overcome these pitfalls will set the foundation for your ability to succeed in the future, regardless of what your endeavor is…and then when you run into injuries or tough times again, you will be better equipped to handle it because you’ve rewired your brain to understand that if it’s important, you will find a way! Happy training!
