“My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness,
then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.”
Michael Jordan didn’t start off as a champion – he and his team went through lots of challenges and defeat before they claimed back-to-back championships. One of the things that we can truly admire about him is how he continually strived to improve himself. He kept pushing himself to the limits, until the Chicago Bulls win one game after another.
For us, we wouldn’t really know what we are capable of until we push our bodies to the limit. Improvements won’t come easy and there will be lots of sweat and soreness, but after a certain point in time, we’ll be sure that everything will eventually pay off.
We wouldn’t know how fast we can run, how high we can jump, how deep we can swim, or how long we can perform unless we train to push ourselves to the limit.
Upon reaching that point, we’ll realize how much we are able to do not just for ourselves, but for our family and community.
Larry Bird, another Basketball great, also said:
“Push yourself again and again. Don’t give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.”
No matter how hard the challenges you face may be, remember that the game won’t be over until it’s over.
Push yourself to your limits.
Fight until the end of your battle.
