Anyway, the story went something like this:
Wayne Bennett would take the team on a training run of however long it was (let’s say 10km for the sake of the story). Some of the players would stop running 2 or 3 paces before the finish line and walk over it. Coach was not impressed.
Physically, they had received the benefits of the run. 2 or 3 strides at the end makes no difference from a physical point of view. But mentally – that’s a diferent story. Mentally they had quit before the finish line.
And thus cometh the lesson: do you have a tendancy to pull up just before the finish line? What limitations do you place upon yourself? The finish line is right in front of you. You’ve done the hard work – don’t quit until you’ve crossed it!
Often, the only limits in life are the ones we place on ourselves.
