We’re told from a young age to not go to far. To leave a little bit in reserve left just in case we need it.
To only give 90% at the most.
Because if you gave 100% then where do you go from there? What if you fail while giving 100%? There’s nothing left.
We’re told to not bite off more than we can chew. If you take on too much, you might crash and burn. You might fail.
But how then do you improve? How do you learn?
When you lift weights you increase the weight to he point where 8 or 9 reps will cause your muscles to give out… to fail.
That’s how you build muscle.
If you lift only the amount that is easy then you won’t make any improvements.
Bite off more than you can chew. Only when you’re up to your neck in it will you find your true character, and be able to move forward.
Then you will see what you’re made of.
