A Champion

In athletics, the individual who distinguishes himself above all others is called a champion. He is the one who gave more than was needed; he went the extra mile; he was the one with the fighting heart. Being a champion is the goal of all who play the game…any game, especially the game of life. If you aren’t the champion, someone else must be, and that should be enough motivation for any man.

To be the best is a lofty goal. To strive for that goal is the mark of a champion. No matter what it is, there is always somebody around to tell you what you aim to do cannot be done. If may be a friend. It may be an enemy. Remember this – they will stop you on only one condition, that you allow them to plant a little seed of doubt in your mind. What they say cannot stop you. What you think can.

If you are truly in earnest about becoming a champion, you must get a skin thick enough to make their doubts bounce off you, and behind that skin the guts to discipline yourself and carry on. Student or second baseman, merchant or miler, retailer or running back, you’ve got to have guts to be a champion.
