Sure, winning is fun.
But only winning is not the point.
Wanting to win – is the point.
Not giving up and never giving in – is the point.
Never letting up – is the point.
Never being satisfied with what you have done in the past – is the point.
Constantly striving to become the best that you could be – is the point.
To lose and learn en route to becoming excellent – is the point.
Because it is not winning that counts.
What counts is the yearning to win that catapults one into action – to prepare to win.
That’s what makes a true athletic champion.
That is only half of the point.
To take the qualities you learned while pursuing athletic greatness and transfer them into becoming a life champion…
Is the point.
