|Nobody posts their failures|
It's not easy to learn to be consistent. It takes more than just going through your workouts every day. The focus on strict technical adherence takes extreme will and determination. Frustration grows as you find that, at certain points, you just can't do it right. You try, and you try, and you try, over and over again, not just to get the weight up, but to do it the same way repeatedly. You will have habits and weaknesses that you can't overcome in a workout, or a week, or even a year.
The price for failure is high; only after you have dedicated months or even years to the sport will you find that, when it comes to the big meets, you never meet your goals. Assuming you even identify the issues, all that time spent is gone forever.
Many people train without thinking about this problem. Workout after workout they will push the weights higher than they can consistently handle correctly, learning bad patterns and getting used to missing. The negative results reinforce a fearful attitude toward the lifts, which spirals into more negative results. But yet the same person might deify another lifter who posts the one big lift they made in training, not even knowing what good technique looks like and why that lifter may or may not be teaching good things.

The solution is to choose to focus on technique until you get it right. It's not an easy road, but the dividends are large. And if you have Olympic goals it's the only way.
