Champions don’t always look confident and cool in the middle of a fight.
Sometimes the strong get bruised. Sometimes the tough get bloodied. What pulls them through, however, is the knowledge that looking perfect and pretty isn’t a prerequisite for being powerful and persistent.
When you’re facing adversity, don’t worry about putting on theatrical displays of heroic strength. You don’t need to act like a resilient character in order to think like a champion.
Resilience isn’t about seeming flawless. It’s about staying focused. It’s not about what the crowd sees. It’s about what the heart knows.
