Never let them see you sweat.
Our natural physical reaction to pressure of any kind is to sweat. No one should know what is going on in your life just by looking at you. Do not be mistaken. I am not saying to suppress your feelings; I am merely saying do not give those who doubt you the satisfaction of knowing that you are unsure about your inevitable success. Especially when its 4th and inches and everything’s on the line, this is when you should remain as poised as possible visualizing the end results. A First Down.
No worthwhile win ever came easily. In the poem “The man who thinks he can”, Walter Wintle shares the secret to ultimate success; “Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. In the end, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.” There are countless David vs. Goliath stories to reference in order to support the previous claim. I want you to focus on the Goliath you are currently battling. You too will be victorious if you continue to battle until the end. Keep Fighting.
Even if you are nervous, uncertain or fearful of the outcome of your battle, I urge you to keep fighting. Quitting should not be an option for you. When you feel like giving up, remember why you got into the battle in the first place. No one ever enters a battle expecting to lose and neither should you.
To The Top!
