[Ed. Note: Ken asked for a post on pushing the limits; you are delivering a post on pushing beyond terror's edge: what is it we know and do as athletes, and how we can bring that to bear to grow and learn in our personal/professional lives.]
On Terror’s Edge: How to Push Your Limits and Excel
Athletes push the limits every day. We push ourselves to run faster and farther. We lift more weights. We spin longer and harder. We hold new poses. We run, hike, and bike as hard and as far as we can, often on the same day. We try new things, always striving beyond our limits.
As athletes we know we have to push past our limits to grow and develop. We do not improve if we do not do so. We know that to develop our muscles, our hearts, and our bodies we have to push past our limits. But do we push past our limits professionally and personally to achieve the same excellent results?
