Does Your Heart Pump Blood Or Koolaid
When it comes to competition, school, work, etc., one will be faced with adversity, stress, and many other difficulties. You train, practice, study, and prepare and when put to the test you find out what your are made of. Living in the world of combat, I see that the way people conduct themselves in sport is the same what they do in other facets of their lives. When challenged, they will either give up or rise up. On the highest levels all athletes are strong, fast and durable. In tournaments, athletes will often look the same during the first part of a match. When fatigue sets in, then you see the separation of winner and loser. You can look in the eyes and see into the soul. That's when you know who is truly the victor. Even in defeat, a true winner will stand proud and give his or her all till the end. Heart, courage, spirit, or whatever you want to call it is something that you can give a fighter. Those things come from within. Make sure you heart pumps blood not Koolaid.
