The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what happens is a famous quote by Arnie (Pictured here with me ).
Yes winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.
Emerge a winner
There are some events that you can influence by making intelligent choices and by taking decisive action. There are other events and situations that are completely out of your control.
You have what it takes to successfully deal with both. There’s no need to worry endlessly about what the future will bring, for it always brings you new opportunities to make a positive difference.
You can do your very best with those situations that are under your control. And you can adapt and adjust to those situations over which you have little or no influence.
The foolish actions of others can leave you hopelessly frustrated if you allow them to do so. Keep in mind, however, that there’s nothing to be gained by working yourself into a knot of frustration and resentment.
Instead, accept whatever comes your way and commit yourself to finding the value in it and making the best of it. With a positive, generous sense of purpose, there’s no limit to what you can achieve, even when conditions are less than ideal.
Greet each new day and each new turn of events with confidence and enthusiasm. And you’ll emerge a winner no matter what
