Heart of a Champion

Heart of a champion:

Through struggles we are formed
Through pain we are shaped.
Hardships only morph,
What most men always search for.

The trials are milestones,
Each one conquered is a win
But in every case it takes one thing
The heart of a champion.

The title of "champion" can never be given.
To be among the greatest, one must press on.
To be on the top you must be willing to sacrifice.
A champion's heart is made from the sweat of those who desire.

From the fires of work
And the labor of the determined
A champion's heart is earned
Each man creates his own.

Some claim to have the secret,
To a quick success that fools
While others look in awe at the ones that only seek to gain.
The true will never be fooled.

The champions before will never tell a lie,
They will always be there for the truth
If ever asked they will tell
The key to success must be earned.

No one can easily be crowned the victor.
None may stride forth and claim the prize without adversity.
Those who only expect to win,
Will be hammered by their opposition.

From the fires of work
And the labor of the determined
A champion's heart is earned
Each man creates his own.

To achieve a champion's heart you must give every ounce of strength.
When others fall short you will prevail.
But the one road to that golden success is never easy to find.
And once you travel down that road, it becomes easy to turn aside.

A true champion will never back down,
Nor turn left or right.
Going back is never an option.
The goal is always clear in his sights.

So take up your courage and rise again,
For this road is always open.
People will scorn and try to turn you away,
But always know it is a possibility if the effort is given.

From the fires of work
And the labor of the determined
A champion's heart is earned
Each man creates his own.

Listen close to my parting words,
For these may be the key.
Each champion holds his success inside
And knows the secret to the being on top.

Follow the road and work with spirit,
And the outcome will be certain.
For those who complete this road,
Find the Heart of a Champion.
