ANATOMY OF A CHAMPION

1. SELF ANALYSIS- BE HONEST, CREATE SOLUTIONS

2. SELF COMPETITION- DON’T ASK ” DID I WIN” ASK ” HOW DID I DO”

3. FOCUS- CONCENTRATE ON THE TASK AT HAND, NOT THE OUTCOME

4. CONFIDENCE-PREPARATION FOR TOUGH, BUT REASONABLE GOALS.

5. TOUGHNESS- ACCEPT RISK, PLAYING TO WIN, ACCEPTING COMMITMENT, SEE CHALLENGE AS OPPORTUNITY AND BELIEVE IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN DESTINY

6. HAVE A GAME PLAN

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s the determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal- a commitment to excellance- that will enable you to attain the success you seek”

Mario Andretti

“We must fight, not in the hope of winning, but rather of keeping something alive”

Henry Reed

“when you go on the warpath, look out for the enemy and do something brave.  Do not make me ashamed of you.  Study everything you see, look it over carefully and try to understand it.  Have good will toward all people.  Tell no lies; the man who lies is a weakling.  He is a coward.  Keep an even temper.  In that way your name will be great”

” THE ROAD A CHAMPION MUST TAKE IS A LONG AND LONELY ONE.  HE MUST WALK IT ALONE, DRAWING ONLY FROM HIS OWN CONFIDENCE AND TRAINING FOR SUPPORT.  ATTEMPTING TO SEEK THIS FROM OTHER SOURCES THAN HIMSELF.  THE LONG HOURS AN ATHLETE LIVES IN DOUBT AND UNCERTAINTY IS THE TEST HE MUST FACE MANY TIMES.  MANY KNOW THE ROAD, MANY TRAVEL THE PATH; SOME NEVER REACH THE END; SOME NEVER TRY.  IT IS NOT AN EASY ROAD THERE ARE OTHERS ON THE WAY, THEY TOO ARE LONELY, LOST IN THEIR OWN PREPARATION AND DETERMINATION.  IF YOU TAKE THE ROAD, BE PREPARED TO KNOW YOURSELF.  BE PREPARED TO ASK YOURSELF WHEN FEAR OF FAILURE APPEAR.  ” DO i HAVE THE COURAGE TO OVERCOME DOUBT?” WHEN SUCCESS COMES, ASK ” HAVE I THE MENTAL STABILITY TO   CHEAP PRAISE AND FALSE REWARDS WHEN I STRIVE TO MAKE THE JOURNEY?’  IF YOU SEEK COMPANY ALONG THE WAY, DO SO NOT BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID OF YOURSELF, NOR AFRAID TO BE ALONE WITH YOUR THOUGHTS.  IT IS YOU WHO MUST FACE THE TASK.  TEN YEARS FROM NOW, THE CHALLENGE IS EVERYTHING; IT IS THE ULTIMATE.  IT IS YOUR QUALITY OF EXISTENCE.  THEREFORE, BE PREPARED TO LIVE KNOWING YOU HAVE CHOSEN, ATTEMPTED, AND TRAVELED THE ROAD LESS TAKEN, STRIVING TO REACH THE END.  STAND TALL WITH INTEGRITY AND PRIDE, CONFIDENT THAT YOU HAVE WITHSTOOD ALL THE PAIN, DOUBT, SACRIFICE, AND ANXIETY THAT HAVE OCCURRED ALONG THE WAY.  THE ROAD A CHAMPION MUST TAKE IS A LONG AND LONELY ONE. UNKNOWN(If you know please let me know with a comment so I can give credit where credit is properly do.)

“WHILE PURSUING OUR ENDEAVORS TOMORROW, WE DARE NOT FORGET THE PROSPECTS OF TODAY”- UNKNOWN

I CAN HONESTLY SAY I HAVE PASSED EVERYONE OF MY OWN TESTS, I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS OR BELIEVES I KNOW WHAT IS TRUE IN MY OWN LIFE, AND I CAN LOOK MY SELF IN THE MIRROR.
