Why not you?

To be a champion?

Talent for sure.

Character – “check”.

A level of commitment to expend an uncommon effort in the here and the now. An act that will create an opportunity to do the same in the  future.

Dedication.

To each other.

To the team. The program. And tradition.

A deep,  abiding and lasting faith in one another.

And in the mission.

A saintly embodiment of perseverance.

The learned and practiced quality that moves one to embrace the uncertainty, channel the anxiety and face the  adversity  that is inherent in the journey.

Vision.

The keen sight of an unwavering brand of leadership that focuses on – and – brings focus to each stage of the mission.

An unrelenting pursuit of the objective.

To be a champion.

A matter of destiny?

Fate?

“Their turn.”

Never.

The outcome of “paying your dues” ?

The “third time is the charm?”

Think not.

To be a champion?

Choose.

To maximize your talent and reveal your character in the process.

Choose.

To work.  To work some more.  And then work some more again.

Choose.

To dedicate that work not to you – but to the one there next to you.

Choose.

To lean into every challenge, seek out the  unknown, see the opportunity that resides in all adversity and release yourself from all anxiety.

Choose.

To emboss that shared vision within your heart, mind and soul.

Choose.

To give no quarter.

And welcome the fact that you will not be getting any in return.

Choose.

To believe.

Like champions do.

They did.

So?

Why not you?
