Pressure makes Diamonds

Pressure - a lot of us don't like it. But 'pressure' in it's various forms, forces us to grow, change, adapt.
The pressure that a H.I.I.T (High Intensity interval Training) workout places on our metabolism, forces us toward a better state of fitness - the pressure of competition forces us to improve our BJJ game - the pressure of needing to support our family forces us toward better financial fitness - the pressure of needing to remember something (for a test or exam) forces our memories to improve - in short, pressure forces adaptation. What we need to do is, if possible, be more selective about what kinds of pressure we subject ourselves to. But when utilised to effect - pressure can build diamonds.
