“If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I’d still swim. And I’d despise the one who gave up.” — Abraham Maslow
I’ve been in some dark places before either in life or just competition. They say in the Marines that there is always an end to whatever pain you are going through so don’t give up. You’d be amazed at what you can accomplish.
They train Seals until exhaustion, but it’s said that they are only at their 60% level and have a reserve. How do I know? If someone pointed a rifle at them, they could still run some more. It’s said if you get to your end and someone offered you $100 to go 30 seconds more, almost everyone can and will do it.
