To Failure and Beyond

When working out, we know what it feels like to work to failure, where the thought of one more rep feels like it may kill us, when in reality we know that it’s our thoughts that fail us more often than our bodies do. If we experience that point of failure with our bodies in the moment, we know that tomorrow we’ll be back. We know this because after a five minute break, when our breath and composure return to normal, we know we could do one more rep right then and there if needed. If we approach our mental efforts and daily work with the same mindset, we can push to failure and beyond.
