The purpose of training/practice isn’t to say you trained.
It’s not about showing off your physique (though that’s a positive byproduct).
Training is not about doing more than others, or having others think you did more than them.
Training in itself is not a competition.

If you’re a serious athlete or professional in any field, or plan to be one, Training and Practice has one purpose: To prepare you for the opportunity to prove your game.

There is no other reason to train.

What you do in training doesn’t make you good, worthy of attention, or someone to look up to. What you do in training is getting you ready for  Showtime — the time and place where you can earn all of that. Or, getting you ready for the audition, showcase or tryout where you can prove you’re worthy of a chance to be in the Show.

And no matter how hard you trained — or claim to train — if you don’t prove it when the lights come on, it doesn’t matter.

There are levels to this shit. Training alone is not the game. It’s a means to an end: Showing Your Game when it matters, where it matters, in front of people who matter.

If you haven’t yet done that, keep working.
