THE MIND

Posted: January 14, 2021 in Uncategorized

Training involves the body, the mind and the heart. Overriding the latest and the greatest science, techniques and supplements is your mental approach.

Built into your training should be sets and drills that need you to move to the point of madness or joy or pain before you perform your work.

If someone paid you a million dollars to do 2 more would you be able to? If you let go of that chin bar are you falling into a bottomless pit if you do not do 2 more?

This is the only way to get your nervous system to perform optimally. Get EMOTION and WILL involved.

Otherwise you are at a fraction of what you ought to be.

“Everyone is familiar with the phenomenon of feeling more or less alive on different days. Everyone knows on any given day that there are energies slumbering in him which the incitements of that day do not call forth, but which he might display if these were greater. Most of us feel as if a sort of cloud weighed upon us, keeping us below our highest notch of clearness in discernment, sureness in reasoning, or firmness in deciding. Compared with what we ought to be, we are only half awake. Our fires are damped, our drafts are checked. We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources. Stating the thing broadly, the human individual thus lives far within his limits; he possesses powers of various sorts which he habitually fails to use.”

― William James
