A record is not what defines you.
Neither streak of medals nor trophies can make you.
You don’t win through any amount of wealth or even accomplishments.
Talent may be a wonderful thing, even a gift –
But it means nothing without Heart.
What defines you is your Heart, your Courage.
The courage to stand up for what is right, yes, to sometimes stand alone.
To never stop, to not let the random misfortunes of life strike you down;
But to have the Heart to continue, no matter what the circumstances;
No matter how many times you have to try; it doesn’t matter how much you lose;
It means to never accept defeat; it means to either Do or Die – that is all that defines you.
YOU CAN’T TEACH HEART.
