Fall in Love with Boredom
I was reading James Clear's Atomic Habits where he shares his interaction with an elite weightlifting coach on what makes someone successful in training.
The coach responded: “At some point it comes down to who can handle the boredom of training every day, doing the same lifts over and over and over.”
James Clear also shares a valuable piece of information on what makes someone successful:
Professionals stick to the schedule; amateurs let life get in the way. Professionals know what is important to them and work toward it with purpose; amateurs get pulled off course by the urgencies of life.
I suppose it's essential to become comfortable with boredom and remember to keep doing the reps.
