Great column from Pavel Tsatsouline, Chairman of the StrongFirst Group. The final phrase of this opening paragraph just about sums it all up. Who do you aspire to be? Will you be a victim or a victor?

I learned a lesson about life and training that I would like to pass along.

It comes from the book that made the greatest impression on me last year. Not a hot new best-seller but a 25-year-old classic, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi. The author is a Hungarian immigrant to the United States, a professor of psychology. In an era when his field oozes with whining and victim mentality, this researcher stands out with his positive and powerful message that you are 100% in control of your happiness.
