Be your own champion. You will run into plenty of detours in life, some more challenging than others. It’s not the events in your life that define you, but how you handle those events. You can be a victim or a champion. You can lament over your problems and hope someone will fix them for you or you can chart a new course and move forward with confidence. When you choose the latter, you find happiness.
If you think of great sporting events, you’ll realize the ones you remember the best are the come from behind victories. In basketball, it’s the double over-time game that’s won with a last minute shot. In golf, it’s the chip-in that wins the tournament on the final hole. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than winning against the odds.
A champion never gives up. Be your own champion.
