The difference between the WARRIOR and the worrier or defeated is the WARRIOR keeps going. It takes the character of Courage, Discipline, Will-Power and Perseverance to keep showing up, to keep fighting. If you want to really find out whether or not you have character check your courage, discipline, will-power and perseverance. You need all of the above to get in the action and keep showing up, you have to keep competing! Because if you don't, then you've proved to yourself and everyone else that you won't keep showing up, you won't compete. Coach Holtz would always say when we were evaluating players to help us win the Championship, "He either can or can't or he either will or he won't. If He can, but he won't, that's worse than he can't, but he will. We need the guy that CAN and WILL!" Warriors Win!
Where are you on this spectrum? CAN you? WILL you? It's really that simple.
