All great performances, breakthroughs, and achievements are the result of some form of pain (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual), adversity, sacrifice, and suffering.

His necessary suffering was overshadowed by his pleasure in reaching his goal. For athletes to develop the desire to maximize their potential, their goals must be meaningful. [Jerry Lynch]
