Learning From the Greats — Emil Zatopek

“It’s at the borders of pain and suffering that the men are separated from the boys.”
— Emil Zatopek

The great ones understood that it was going to hurt. The great ones understood that suffering was going to happen. The great ones understood that managing this pain and suffering is what got them to the finish line first.

It’s a great reminder that this is not supposed to be easy.
