Faithful Teammates

I have fond memories of going to the gym with my dad. It taught me discipline to wake up before everyone else to go do exercises that would hurt during and after. I didn’t always enjoy it, but I definitely enjoyed the effect of simply doing it every day despite how it felt. Some days, the weights just seemed heavier. Every exercise seemed harder than they were the day before. The psychological effect of the grind causes us to face what my dad called “heavy gravity days”. Gravity doesn’t actually change but our frail minds trick us to believe things are more difficult than they actually are because the novelty has worn off and we are now bored with the very activity that will lead to success. Great teammates understand that what makes them great is they are faithful on the day they don’t feel like it.
