Associating pain with gain

Someone running a marathon will keep pushing through as their body continuously tells them to give up and don’t finish the race.

Someone working long hours to get a project finished by a deadline will push through the feelings of tiredness.

Someone who is committed to losing weight will push through the workouts when it hurts and their body is aching all over.

Someone who really wants to start a business will push through the learning curve of figuring out what and how to do what is needed.

In all these examples, people associate pain with gain.

They know if they push through the pain, there will be the gains that they want.

They know the emotional and physical pain is only temporary.

The more we can associate pain with gain, the more we’ll push ourselves.

Because, we know that pain will result in the gains that we seek.
