Discipline yourself so that life doesn’t have to.
Everybody knows that it’s painful and hard to wake up at 6AM and get to work. We know it’s difficult to make 500 shots every day in a shooting workout. It’s painful and difficult to get in the weight room and tear up your body to build new muscle. It’s difficult and painful to study for a test. It’s difficult and painful to sacrifice your lesser desires for greater desires: to sacrifice sleep and hanging out with your friends.
But here is the secret that champions know: All of that stuff is painful but it is less painful than when life comes along and tells you no.
No. You didn’t make the team you wanted to make.
No. You’re not a starter.
No. You don’t get the minutes you want.
No. You don’t get that job or that opportunity or that internship.
No. You’re not going to get to be in that relationship.

Less than 5% of training time is spent on the mind. It’s like a muscle. If you don’t train it, it doesn’t grow.
