“I’m getting what I deserve.  I’m reaping what I sowed…”

In any rigorous endeavor, the bedrock for success lies in the mindset of the individual. I am reminded of the story popular in the business world about burning boats. Alexander the Great, when he sailed into Asia, disembarked his infantry and then set his entire navy ablaze in the harbor. The only way home meant a march across land and through the enemy: victory or death.

Total commitment. A potent psychological shift occurs when the possibility of giving up disintegrates into ashes.

The hard routine grants the willing participant entry into a hard sanctum located in a lucid place of the mind, free of the “soft” psychological distractions and habits that can hinder sustained changes in action. In short, it boils down to denial of self-indulgence.

This shit gets me fired up!!  Read “the Hard Routine” here.
