Want to know the secret of a champion?
Belief in yourself and the courage to see it through.
This morning, thoughts of the upcoming NCAA Football Championship are on my mind. Alabama has been a powerhouse in college football for the past several years and the man leading this team is Nick Saban. He knows how to build a winning team and his coaching style is impressive. I may not be an Alabama fan but Saban gets all my respect.
When the rankings came out, Alabama was chosen as #4 and made it to the playoffs. Scores of people whined and complained saying the Tide didn’t belong there and Clemson was going to crush them. When asked about it at a press conference, Saban half-smiled and told the reporter, “We’ll see.”
Needless to say, Alabama crushed Clemson and are on their way to the Championship Game Monday night.
What does this have to do with today’s thought?
In order to be a champion, you have to believe in yourself so strongly that when the big game comes, you’re confident in your abilities and nothing can stop you.
Saban and the players of Alabama know they are the better team, no matter what the world thinks. On the biggest stage of college football, they’ll show the world they are champions.
You are a champion, too. It’s within you; all you have to do is embrace your inner strength and dominate. The world is watching… are you ready?
