I think we've all been there in life; some things do just knock you for six, you can either wallow in your own emotions or you can put them aside and figure out what can be done. You can either let it keep you down or you can say "well ok, that happened. Now what are my options".

I had this talk with a friend of mine recently, he's putting things aside that he knows he has to do because he's stressed and upset. I call it 'emotional paralysis', he refuses to do what's necessary because his emotions are crippling him.

I love competition.

To me training without goals just isn't training. The ultimate expression of realising your goals is doing it on the platform, unbiased, with judges who can call you if you try short-cuts. Competitors will understand this mentality, it's nothing against non-competitors this is just my personal preference.
