“If you want to play the game and win, you’ve got to play ‘full out.’ You’ve got to be willing to feel stupid, and you’ve got to be willing to try things that might not work – and if they don’t work, be willing to change your approach. Otherwise, how could you innovate, how could you grow, how could you discovery who you really are?” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within
“If there is one thing I have learned, particularly in my life as an athlete, it is that our limits may not be where we think they are.

“The key is to trust in your preparation. You have done all you can, so focus on that fact. You will remain the same person before, during and after the race, so the result, however important, will not define you. The journey is what matters.” ~ Chrissie Wellington, A Life Without Limits
“Never try to be better than someone else. Learn from others, and try to be the best you can be. Success is the by-product of that preparation.” ~ John Wooden
“Players with fight never lose a game, they just run out of time” ~ John Wooden

It’s that time again. Time to get psyched up, time to step up the training, and time to get back in the ring and compete. It’s always an exciting time and it doesn’t matter how many times I’ve done it before, the anticipation of getting back in the ring always leaves butterflies in my stomach.
“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.” ~ Pierre de Coubertin, Founder of Modern Olympic Games
“Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life.” ~ John F. Kennedy
