"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes...

How's this for motivation?

Do you know what you get from lifting heavy weights? I don't think you do. Otherwise you wouldn't be questioning why the **** you're doing this right now. You would be doing everything in your power to make sure you increase that weight the next time you work out. Are you familiar with the...

Dealing with demotivation; my issues
