Today it was raining in the morning, and I thought would it be better to go outside in this weather? I should better stay in my house to stay warm. I am thinking about my relaxation while most of the people are working out in this weather. Did I achieve a lot of things in life already? No, I didn't! So, how the hell I earned the right to lie on my bed and stay warm under my blanket?
Most of us bring out thousands of excuses in a bad situation so that we can blame our luck. This is quite similar to no going outside while raining! But believe me, those who win who go! Who sacrifices their warm blanket to work hard while nobody is outside.
Those win who is awake to practice while their competitors are sleeping. You are running into the rain while nobody is on track! And you will win the race while in a competition because you know the trails better than anyone. You sacrificed your time while others are thinking about bad weather. You tried to push your limits in a bad situation, so it's now easy to run in good condition.
Your first thinking is to go to bed, stay warm and wait until the snow or rain stops. That's what 99% of people usually do! Most people find this reasonable, by the way. But the question is, are you like everyone? Or you want to enjoy the benefits which you can get by sacrificing your relaxation?
Look at the people who are successful in life. Check what they did and what they sacrificed so that they can make them different from other people! For example, I love the actor Will Smith. He used to work a lot while others are resting, sleeping, or gossiping.
You should have your own method of sacrificing. For example, some people stay awake till 4 am, not because they are watching movies. Because they are doing the things that will make them better than anyone. Or, some people woke up at 4 am, while the majority of people are sleeping. Because they want to enjoy the sound environment to boost them up, they started working while we are not even awake.
No matter when you awake, what you sacrifice, but the pattern is always the same! They are willing to pay a price that most wouldn't!
There's nothing heroic to run into the rain. Honestly, it sucks! Cold wind blowing your face while running, it sucks! That's not relaxing at all! But you are out there while everyone is warm inside! And believe me, there's value to this sacrifice.
