If you have been to Starbucks you might have noticed the quotes on the back of the coffee cups. I do not drink coffee but I got a hot chocolate there once and the quote really made me take a step back and think.
The Way I See It #190
"If I have given my all and still do not win, I haven’t lost. Others might remember winning or losing; I remember the journey."
-- Apolo Anton Ohno
Five-time Olympic medalist.
It did catch my eye because it is from Apolo Ohno, but every word he said is true and should be taken to heart by every athlete. If you can push your limits and walk away and say "I've done my best", you've gotten that much better. Ohno didnt get this far by taking an easy win.
