Natural talent does not guarantee strength of mind. Natural talent does not guarantee winning. Natural talent does not guarantee success by whatever definition you attach to it. Natural talent has no value without the willingness and capacity to withstand pressure â€“ face it, work through it, and beat it. Natural talent by itself is not guaranteed protection against the crushing weight of pressure. The only way to beat pressure is with REPS â€“ Repeated Exposure to Pressure & Stress. The same applies to work, business, sports, anything where you have to compete and survive or get eaten alive. â€“ from www.soulofalifter.com #workingout is sacred #24/365/xfitnessnevercloses.
