“At the end of the day, yeah, you can have some indicators outside of you to say you’re on the right track. You’re doing the right things, but the end of the day it’s up to you to decide if you want to pursue something. It’s up to you to decide are you going to keep pushing yourself when nobody’s watching? That’s when we rely too heavily on the external motivators, you know, we’re not able to properly answer that question of why are you doing this when the pain hits.” – Derek Thiessen The Daily Athlete
