Everyone's pain tolerance is different, but why is it some people are able to push through pain, while others cant?
Pain isn't just a physical thing, it's not just damage to our bodies. Our emotions and thoughts are involved too. There are people out there who are able to push through it and focus on the game, while others can't quite seem to shift their focus as easily.
Some even feel too pressured to push past it. Adrenaline can take you only so far, and your focus on the game may help you overcome the pain. But what happens when that 'high' wears off? What do you do about the pain when you can't rely on the focus of winning and the adrenaline? Your mind can help with that.
