Many coaches will tell you that hard work in the gym/on the sports field, teaches you life lessons and makes you a better person.
As long as you aren’t learning how to:
avoid things you don’t like
use effort as a substitute for understanding
avoid failure in front of your peers
chase objective measures and ignore subjective ones.
create the appearance of working hard
Hard work should teach you:
positive self talk
mental and physical flow
a beginners mind
One of my favourite quotes is 'how you do anything, is how you do everything'. Picture how you deal with roadblocks, difficulties, frustrations and failure in your life, then think about those same situations in the gym or sport practice.
