THIS was for a Freshman City Championship game. Does it seem a bit over the top?
I doesn't to me.
The level of competition doesn't matter.. it's not about the external factors you face, but the internal struggles you overcome. Doubt, fear, insecurity... they're not real. We create them to give us an excuse for not finishing what we start.
Trying consists of much more than starting. I've started things dozens of times that I've never finished, but true courage is more than trying. Anyone can try, anyone can start something...
We aren't measured by the things we start, but the things we finish.
