Incredible mental discipline is the single most important attribute to excel in any sport.

It hurts, there isn't a ton of money in the beginning, and it prevents youthful enjoyment of life in traditional ways.

Anybody who discounts the importance of what is between the ears hasn't done it for a living.

After that, it is the fact that they are born just that much more gifted then the other rare fighters with their supreme level of focus.
