Adversity is always opportunity.
Cycling strength can help you overcome real-life challenges. The mountains you conquer on your bike give you what you need to get through the toughest of challenges you are faced off the bike.
You see climbing is so much like real-life adversity.
Just like when the road pitches up and the pain sets in your body, you have the choice to attack it, struggle up it, or quit and turn around.
If you attack it, mentally you embrace the pain, overcome it, and create new physical and mental ability from it.
If you chose to let the hill dictate your feelings, you struggle. You get lost in the effort, often questioning why you are doing it. It takes longer, it hurts worse, and you get less benefit out of it.
If you chose to quit, you avoid the initial pain, but you are only prolonging the inevitable. You lose confidence, you get no fulfillment, and you lose your need physical/mental growth.
You can do it. You are good enough. You are strong enough. You do have what is takes!
Go ALL IN, attack it, and grow to the next level from it!!!
