Hard Work

IMG_2593If there is one thing I know about winning, it’s that it takes a tremendous amount of good old-fashioned HARD WORK.

I think the most challenging thing about hard work is that it’s hard (lol), and when things get hard, we tend to get hit with a horrible case of the “I quits,” the “I cant’s,” the “I’ll nevers,” and—last but not least—the “I give ups.” I would be lying to you if I said that, as a world-class athlete, I had never come down with a slight case of the “I give ups.” In my career, I’ve had to face some really tough challenges, and there were times when it seemed like no matter how hard I tried or how hard I kept working, I couldn’t get to where I was trying to be.

But just like a common cold, I didn’t let these negative viruses hang around in my system for too long. I immediately took some quick pick-me-up supplements!


Vitamin B for Belief in Myself

Vitamin C for Courage & Confidence

Vitamin D for Desire & Determination

Vitamin P for Patience & Perseverance

You may feel like you are being tested, or you might feel like you are failing. In these times, you may find yourself asking, “why me?” I’ve been there before y’all, and it was prayer, hard work and never-give-up mentality that reminded me to take my supplements everyday. Applying these life skills has brought me great success and blessings throughout my life. Just keep working hard, and it will do the same in yours.

You left us feeling like we had know each other for years. Holding you gold metal is something we will never forget. God bless you and protect you. Remember, we are only 2 hours from Atlanta.
