“There’s no talent here, this is hard work. This is an obsession. Talent does not exist, we are all equal as human beings. You could be anyone if you put in the time. You will reach the top, and that is that. I am not talented, I am obsessed.” – Connor McGregor

Often we can reach a plateau as artists. We achieve some level of comfort and choose to stay there rather than push ourselves towards the next goal or the next achievement. Athletes have to stay at their peak performance level or next time they’re out on the field, it will be obvious that they are not up to par. They see challenges as an opportunity to prove themselves and reach the next goal. Nothing is a set back, only an opportunity to learn and improve.
