Looking Within

At the end of the day, when you look at yourself in the reflection of the mirror, you and only you truly know if you gave your all today. You and this mirror share the most intimate relationship of all. You will not admit to anyone else that you did not work as hard as you could have today, but the real truth lies deep inside of you, and even deeper inside the mirror. The one great thing about you being the athlete and the mirror being the mirror is that the mirror will never lie to you and you will never be able to fool the mirror. The truth surfaces each time you look back into your own eyes with each passing glance and reflecting stare. You, the athlete: Contemplating whether you can accept or not accept all you did this very day to be the best athlete you can be.

Understand, you are the only one who has to look at yourself through this mirror – not only today, but every day. Because today is now over, you look within your self and know what you must do tomorow. Never look in that mirror and give up, giving up is not for champions. You must see a champion, a winner to become one. All of these decisions lie within yourself, you and this mirror only know the best of your ability, so go out and show the world.
