I am often asked how I can maintain the motivation to train almost daily for so many years; and I answer that I never train, but I enjoy and I am happy every second that I do sports and, as a consequence, I train.
I have been doing an intense sports activity for decades and this could not be maintained on the basis of discipline, perseverance and effort. The fact that I stay so active for so long time is that every day that I go out to practice any sport, I am excited, I feel happy and I enjoy it to the fullest.
Strive to strive does not make sense. The best thing is to strive for something that one is genuinely passionate about.
And if an image is worth more than a thousand words, I leave you this video that we recorded yesterday (12/13/2018), where I think that this concept is well understood.
