This can cause a drop in motivation, questioning your abilities due to unproductive results, or setting unrealistic goals set in unrealistic time-frames – no matter how much harder you push.
I was always taught to push and drive myself to achieve success. The only way to win was to play hard, train hard, work hard, be hard on myself in order to become the best, and even then, I would always tell myself to push harder.
