Learn to appreciate working harder for less ROI
As you progress in weight training it will take more work to get less incremental increase...and you have to fucking love that or get out of the sport. Same holds true in life in some cases.
As we grow and mature not only with lifting but in life we don’t see as much ROI in the things we do. That is not a bad thing though...that means you have already worked your ass off to get advanced to the point you are now...be proud of that!
But it is at this point that people begin to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.
Are you going to be satisfied with the success you have earned (muscle, strength, job, family, education, etc), or are you going to continue to push harder knowing you may not have a whole lot more to gain?
It may be 5lbs on a PR in two years, it may be taking four years off from competing just to add 10lbs to your frame...maybe it’s going back to night school for two years so you can get a promotion that only gives you an extra $10,000 a year...the point is, you have to decide is the extra effort worth it to you? Are you passionate about the process of improving and continually striving to be better even if it is just by a little?
I think the ones who end up with the most success are the ones who would be willing to put in the extra effort even if there was no gain of any kind in the end.
Decide if you’re willing to work harder for less ROI or are you satisfied with the position you are in now! Everything in life is a choice and a gamble...you need to make the choice to play your hand or not.
