Quotations:

Jesse wasn’t referring simply to hard work, and disciplined preparation. Maybe those are two ingredients that are the good results of those battles 'inside' "

it’s desirable to win these two types of internal battles, consistently enough, so that the physical shape, confidence, and determination, are optimized. This leads to functional preparation/training, which in turn leads to more learning and  increased odds of winning medals. "
