Embracing the Pain

This was my mantra for all the tough times in races and training I had but I realized how good it was to apply that to everyday life. Our own struggles are what makes us better but only if we adapt and learn from our mistakes. You can also actively put yourself in uncomfortable situations so that you are adapted for the future.

Some great examples from the PAX about how they have been doing this in their life.

Thank you for all of you for being here. Every single one of you are here to better yourself. Whether it’s to be a better father, brother, son, husband, friend, human, coworker, you’re doing it by being present here and working on yourself. When your mind commits, your body follows so every time you show up, it’s motivation for everyone of us here to show up, do good, be right.

Peace, Danish
