Getting Stronger—What Has to Be Done

“The strong do what they have to do and the weak accept what they have to accept.”—Thucydides 


There are enormous weights to be lifted.

There are genetic limitations that are impossible to surmount.

There are lifting and throwing records to be broken.

There are some peaks that are just too high to ascend.

Guess who gets to determine what has to be done and what has to be accepted?
