It’s only pain. How bad can it get? You are not dead. You’re here, you’re breathing. Dig deeper.
Everything that you ever wanted is on the other side of comfort. The side that no one wants to go. Pain, Sacrifice, Loss, A battered body, A broken relationship. How far will you go? To achieve what you’ve never had, you must do what you’ve never done.
1) mightymouse125 completely broke his fibula in UFC 130 & still managed to grind through for a unanimous decision victory.
2) In the Vietnam War, Msgt Roy Benavidez ate 7 bullets, 28 shrapnel fragments, went hand-to-hand with several enemies & still managed to casevac 8 men in the process.
3) A batch mate we personally know, completed the 72km route march despite a Torn ACL & a bad flu.
The human body can take a lot of punishment. In selection, no matter how dark or painful it gets, remember that you are still in a controlled environment. Sure, holding that pushup position or going for back to back missions may seem like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. But put your discomfort in perspective with what others have endured through & reflect on yourself. Are you really hurting or are you just complaining? How bad do you want it?
