We all know dreams require sacrifice, so, what are you willing to give up to get to your dreams? It’s really about how bad you want it! Do you want it bad enough to put in the sweat blood and tears? It is the mental fortitude that makes the difference between a good athlete and a great athlete. It’s this mental toughness that can push you through your physical limits. This is also the reason why the fastest race course is a course with the loudest spectators. Because they give you this mental boost.
