Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something deep inside—a desire, a dream, and a vision. They have to have the skill and the will.
But the will must be stronger than the skill.
When I was boxing I would set a goal for myself to demonstrate to other people what could be done, and to prove to myself that anything was possible when I set a goal then worked to achieve it. We create our own realities according to our thoughts and beliefs. The critics who told me what I couldn’t do didn’t know as well as I what I was capable of.
Everyone wins and everyone loses every now and again. If we didn’t experience a loss we would never know what we are capable of. The important thing to remember is:
You don’t really lose when you fight for what you believe in. You lose when you fail to fight for what you care about.”
