"You have to embrace the hurt" - Gevvie Stone, US Olympic Rower Watch the video below on why Gevvie Stone rows. Why she trains so hard and how she motivates herself to push just a little bit harder than seems possible.

Whether it's 10 strokes at a time on the rower or five thrusters at a time, there's a point where you have to make a decision whether you're going to quit or push harder.

If you want to be your best, you push.

I love the Olympics because we get to see a lot of sports that aren't in the limelight on a regular basis. But we also get to be inspired almost every day by an athlete's journey to get to where he or she is now.

If we could all find that motivation to work hard at something like these athletes do I think we could accomplish so much more. Train, work, live like you have just one shot at it and see what can happen in your life.
