The last 5

by on Nov.06, 2010, under Inspirations, Training Tips

Almost everyone understand physical strength but few truly appreciate the importance of developing mental strength and work ethics at a young age.

Just take the Slovenia’s cross country skier Majdic as an example, she has the perfect excuse to just give up with 4 broken ribs and a damaged lung from a fall, but she didn’t. She pushed on and won a bronze medal. (Link: http://vancouver2010.sympatico.ca/). The drive and passion to push to be your best did not come by accident and did not just happen during the Olympics, that mental strength and determination come from years of training.

I always tell the kids, it is not the first 5 push ups that give them the most benefit, it is always the last 5 when the body is ready to quit but they push on to finish – those last 5 trains both body and mind!

Great physical strength allow you to be healthy and do a lot of different things. Great mental strength will play a huge role in your studies, career and life.
