The human brain is an engineering marvel, with an internal dialogue capable of 520 words per minute, that can work for or against you. In times of mental and physical fatigue those words are the deference between success and failure, winning or losing and survival. Training yourself to achieve control of this internal dialogue is a skill that can be taught. The will to win is as instinctual as the will to survive.
