Great video about pushing yourself (actually about having someone else push you). The principles he discusses are applicable to everything in life that’s worth doing, whether it’s rowing, running a marathon or even your first 2 mile jog/walk, working your desk job, fostering a relationship, or raising children.
“We all have a point [at] which we stop, we give up; we all have a point where we back off. Doesn’t matter how determined, what ambitions we have, how much we want to get there, there are times when we will back away from it…So we create an environment where the goal is to retard that point.”
Nobody is perfect in this world, so we are all susceptible to giving up. The thing is we need to pull ourselves back up and keep pushing. Great post.
