Imagine you’re given the world’s best Olympic trainer, training grounds, and even genetic surgery to make you better, faster, and stronger. Imagine that the odds were so stacked in your favor that there was nothing that could stand between you and victory that couldn’t be overcome.
Now if you actually believed that was true, would you just sit on the couch, not interested at all in seeing what could be accomplished? Would you say, “Well, I have such a great trainer and advantage, that I can just take it easy and I’ll still do pretty well.”
What about the investment made by that great trainer?
Or the resources set aside for your training and development?
Or the work put in to build you into a whole new person, with the capability of being so much better, faster, and stronger?
Would you feel fine still saying, “Its my life to do with as I please?”
