Oldie but a good one, never posted here till today.
This whole thing that I do, this all-time focus, all-time gameface shit, it is one thing that I hold near and dear to my heart. That’s why I believe in it so much. Each and everyday I wake up, it’s time to put that gameface on. I was never the talk of the community, the talk of the school, never a standout guy. That’s good, because I do what I do anyway. People knew that I had the ability to be a success, the ability to be a great person, but there’s the personal issue, the doubt in your character, the one thing that will make you analyze your life and your persona.
To have the motivation is to have things that inspire you. Life will get you down, but if you dig deep and find that spirit, that thing that drives anyone: competition. That drives ANYONE, but what drives ME is my family and friends. The sacrifices they made is my focus. My other inspiration is John Cena. Though I know wrestling is scripted, Cena is the 1st wrestler that I’ve ever been fascinated with. It is something about him that basically draws me in, to the point that I find myself portraying him at times. “Never back down, never quit.” It is this attitude that I desire, the attitude to never back down from any type of competition or hardship. To meet EVERYTHING head on.
The changes I made over the years are changes that suit one person: ME. This fact has always been avoided, despite how much I hold others close to the heart. There’s a realization. No matter what happens, there’s always going to be that spark, that one drive, that one goal, that one focus. Not to be THE best, but to be MY best. Then once I see my best, I top it.
If I fail, it’s a big mark against me. This is one life that I will live to the best because it’s my one shot. I’ve been here a long time. I’m not a one-trick pony, if you think that, you sick. I’ve made a life out of proving others wrong. I can always add to the list.
I dwelled this post from this video. I’ll later post my new thoughts around 6ish.
