With any pursuit, whether in athletics or in life in general, there will be numerous factors influencing the end results. However, the common and greatest denominator will always be you. You cannot control everything, but you can control your efforts, energy, focus, commitment and determination (to name a few). In some ways, what you put in will determine what you get. I love this week’s lyrics because the message is that, the real difference-maker is YOU. You are incredibly powerful, probably beyond comprehension. You just have to decide if you are willing to go the distance… And I have a feeling that if you truly apply yourself to whatever it is you are passionate about, you won’t be disappointed with the outcome…. It’s just a feeling…
You vs. Them
Whether or not you win this thing, you've got to decide how
you're gonna walk out of here when it's all said and done.
...because the game is going to go on.
...and there's only one rule you're going to need to know about:
"There are no second chances"
There's only this moment and the next moment.
Every one of those moments is a test that you get to take ONE time and ONLY one time.
So, if you see an opening, tear into it!
If you get a shot at victory, make DAMN sure you take it.
SEIZE that moment!
That moment is a crossroads where everything you want
will collide with everything standing in your way.
You've got momentum at your back.
Fear and doubt are thundering like a
freight-train straight at you.
...and all you've got --
...the only difference between making history and BEING history
the only thing -- the ONLY thing you can count on at any given moment is YOU!
It's you versus "them"
... you versus "no"
... you versus "can't"
... you versus "next year", "last year", "statistics", "excuses"
It's you versus "history"
... you versus "the odds"
It's you versus "second place"
The clock is ticking.
Let see what you've got.
