The Sports Theory with the Life Theory…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA           Those who have played competitive sports and have competed at a high level no matter what sport you competed in, know that there is a fire that burns inside you, that not only helps you get ready for game day,  but also keeps you focused no matter what happens during the game, so you can finish the game with a positive instead of a negative.

This fire once lit is a very hard thing to extinguish and when a player reaches the point where he/she is at an age, that they can’t compete at such a high level and 100%, then it is time to retire from that sport, which only that certain player really knows that time, as well as how hard it is to extinguish the flame of the fire that competition holds on them.

Just as in sports where the fire burns the competitive juices from us, we in life have this fire that burns inside us and this fire drives our existence, as we walk our paths along our journey of life.

This fire within us all, is equivalent to having a deep passion for what you do and how you do it, we all have our own way of showing this passion, which shows just how unique we are to each other. Some of us don’t truly get a chance to light this fire that burns within us, simply because there are life events that get in our way and these same events can determine who we become, if we let them control the fiber of our being.

Life and Sports are very similar, when you live and play them correctly, it’s when you go off the grid of what the meaning of right and wrong are, when we don’t see the similarities they each hold for us. Then if you add in the factor of winning more than you lose, now you have a whole new situation, which is what makes life and sports no fun for anybody. Let’s look at the New York Yankees or the New England Patriots, these teams win more than they lose and because of this it breeds a lot of hatred, you have people that are simply jealous that they are not a part of their organizations, so they than give in to the idea of hating on them, which shows a quitter more than anything, instead of being the one that steps up and beats them, showing a no quit attitude, “To be a winner, you need to beat a winner”.

We all have this fire that burns deep within us, it is not just for sports players playing a game, look at life as we walk our journey like a game, it is how you play that game that determines how successful you become. When you never light that fire within you, then you will never have or find that purpose of what drives you through your journey. Tom Brady for instance of the New England Patriots, the reason he has stood the test of time in football, is the fact he lit that fire within him and found the purpose of his playing football and because of this, he will be the best Quarterback in the history of the NFL when he finally hangs up the cleats. There are a lot that hate on him because of his success, simply because they are jealous of his journey and instead of trying to beat him, they give up and take the easy way out, which is simply hating on him and saying negative things about him. You want to win at anything whether sports or life, you can never give up, never have a no quit attitude and when you see someone that is successful, make that your purpose to be like them, which means no matter what kind of life event happens to us, work that much harder to overcome the odds, work that much harder to overcome adversity, so you to can be a winner and not that loser that calls out the winner, with jealousy and hatred.

” Winning isn’t just getting a trophy or a ring, it is the respect that comes your way from winning correctly”

” To be able to be a winner, you have to step up and beat a winner in all you do”

” A true winner wasn’t always a winner, he had to learn to lose first, then they became a winner”

The Fire that burns within us all…….

We all as Humans have a fire that burns deep within us, this is the drive that pushes us to succeed on our paths of our Journey’s of life.

This fire never blows out or gets extinguished, but it may become cooled from the different life events that may cross our paths, these events will effect us in ways we can’t explain, cause we let them control every fiber of our being, they will make us act in ways we normally would not,   but yet if we only learned and understood better these events, just maybe these events wouldn’t control us, so this drive of the fire within us, would keep on burning and we all can succeed on our paths of our journey of life.

We are all afraid of fire, as the fire we are familiar with destroys everything around us, but what we tend to forget is this fire within us, only helps us stay in control of ourselves and drives us along our paths of our journey, this fire is deep within the core of our spirit and operates in ways we don’t understand, cause with the help of these events and this fast paced society we live today, we lose sight of our journey, we lose direction of the path we are walking and the fire that burns within us, gets covered as we lose the drive to succeed and then wander aimlessly along our journey.

” The real fire isn’t hot at all, as it is deep within the core of all of us as Human Beings”

” The burn of the fire is really the drive that helps us succeed in anything we do on the paths of our journey of life”

” We get one shot at walking our journey, let the fire burn and give us the drive to succeed along that journey”
