Have you wondered how people get to the top? Have you wondered what it takes to become a champion? What does the other guy have that you don’t? The difference between winning and losing is very small. The difference between winning a race, taking number one, or getting the gold can be simply trivial. When all politics are put aside, when all bets are off, only one winner will remain. Only one athlete can call himself elite. But not everyone gets there overnight. The difference between first and second place is the training that goes along with every competition. If first place is running 8 laps, you have to run 10. While the gold medalist lifts 100 lb weights, you have to lift 20 more. You don’t want to be in his shoes. You want to be in your own shoes! If winning means something to you you have to put in the time and effort. But that’s the beauty of competition. No one starts the same. It may take longer, it may be harder, but if your willing to put in the effort, you’ll be racking up trophies in no time.
