Over time, what we apply daily begins to shape our surroundings through transformation. It can be slow and quite lonely, while in the middle of that ring holding, holding, holding things up. When mostly you just want to scream, "I can use some help here!" But you can't drop anything, the environment is counting on you. You are the fixer, the nurturer, the inventor. So you keep lifting, holding up the really heavy parts.
There is no substitute for what we apply daily. Through heavy lifting during the most trying times we leave a traceable DNA. This is the DNA our children will remember and emulate when it is their time in the ring!
