Many Olympic athletes have incredible stories of perseverance and overcoming adversity.

Here are two quotes from Muhammad Ali that sum this up…

I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

What do these ideas mean to you when you think about how you train and prepare for doing what you want to be good at?

What do you commit to doing differently?

My best wishes, Paul
