Motivation is one of the keys to mental toughness.
But most people don’t know what motivation is.
Most people think that motivation is a feeling. They wait until they feel motivated to act motivated.
It doesn’t work that way.
The athletes I work with know that motivation is an action.
If you start acting motivated, you will begin feeling motivated.
I know a lot of marathon runners. Do you know what the hardest part of running is?
Putting on your shoes.
Think about it.
