to write this :) Physical training should transcend pain. Controlling your emotions is your first step. The rest depends on how far and fast you're willing to go. In this quest, the only person who will hold you back is yourself. Remember, ego speaks, and the spirit works. Whoever side you rely upon, will shape the course of the rest of your life.
The victory in the battle between voices in your head and the energy in your heart is decided by you. For you are the warrior who leads the either side to ruling your life. Choose your side wisely, because the joy of life and peace of your future-self depends on it.
You must immerse yourself in your work. You have to fall in love with your work. You must dedicate your life to mastering your skill.
Train like your life depends on it. Train to find and feel and become the best version of yourself. Train till pain becomes normal. Train like its your way of life. Follow each effort with an even greater one. The hardest part of your life is not the one you're facing but are yet to come. So train to be a great warrior. Rain down courage on your weakness till there is only one flow of willingness in every fiber of your being. Remember with practice comes mastery. With mastery comes knowledge. With knowledge comes strength. Once you have mastered the craft, you can use it for whatever purpose you choose.
The challenge is to think and choose, not to feel and react, this fate you must show every aspect of your life. That's the path to success.
All these, are necessary components of what will be a great rebirth.
