First of all, I would like to say what an honor it was speaking to the Team USA Contenders. These young people are grinding day in and day out to qualify and compete for the united states in the upcoming olympics. This was such an amazing and serious opportunity. I say serious, because these young people make so many sacrifices for ONE moment! ONE MOMENT! They train for years to condition their minds and bodies to be able to compete at the HIGHEST LEVEL. They literally have to give 120 EVERYDAY, before they actually compete. They only get ONE SHOT! Do you realize how deep that is. Many of us take that for granted. We are given too many chances to get it right. We are satisfied with good or even average aspirations, because it’s easier. We don’t have to give 120 everyday, just to earn the chance to get it right ONCE. That’s why this opportunity was so important to me. I spoke life into a group of young contenders that have the opportunity, to not only represent the USA in the most coveted athletic event, but to WIN!!
How many of you give your all everyday to make your dream a reality? Be honest. What can you do today to put forth more effort? What can you do today to push yourself closer to your dream. Remember, whenever you feel like you’ve given your all, take one more step! That’s what going 120 means! Remember, you too only get ONE SHOT. You may look at certain opportunities as small, but each SMALL WIN leads to bigger wins, which ultimately leads to you living your dreams. So, in the words of, Slim Shady, “..You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow this opportunity comes once in a lifetime…” Until next week, make the rest of your life, the best of your life.
