from a business card

one of those top tier things you hear sporting coaches say.
they tell you
EXCELLENCE
they tell you
BELIEVE
they tell you
GOLD
you hear them better when it comes from them.
From the people who see your potential in the most appealing light.
they see you
SUCCEED
they see you
WIN
they see you
PERSEVERE
and it always feels right.
it always feels like they have some crystal ball and can gauge your true capabilities.
they make you
FIGHT
they make you
DREAM
they make you
PUSH
but you’re not playing a sport.
you’re not long jumping, 200m sprinting.
you’re not competing with nations, or for a title.
you’re simply just trying to get from one day to the next so you can be
PROUD
so you can be
POSITIVE
so you can be
ALIVE
