  1. A very amusing selection. It seems to me that a lot of people quit training for just one reason, and that is lack of motivation. I think everyone should just try to share their thoughts, find that person who will support them. Sometimes we don’t get this from our relatives because they think that our problems are nothing, but that’s not true, the psychological training in this respect is much more difficult than the physical one.
