I certainly concur with the theme of perseverance and moving beyond the wall of resistance. I love the concept of “deep work” and the ability to focus and sustain the course.
I often speak about the concept of “pain” though. For I do think we make too much out of and take too much pride in suffering — such that suffering itself can become the reward.
In the physical domain — as a way of experience because it simply works — one can begin to dance with the frame of pain. Yes, it may “hurt” to do another rep, another set. It may be beyond what I can feel comfortable with to push the next stroke of the pedal.
But… is it pain or is it simply the way the body responds to change — to challenge?
When you reach the place where you can look at “pain” objectively, embrace the experience, reframe its meaning. Well… that’s a game changer.
