I believe character development is the key to true success

and is the only quality that sets me apart from everyone else.

I believe dreaming is the first step in propelling my goals into reality.

I believe there is no substitute for hard work, sacrifice,

and discipline, the ingredients that prepare me for the “big game”.

I believe faith, positive attitude, and confidence is the keys that get me through anything life throws at me.

I believe that defeats make me stronger and tough times are tests to be passed. The ground is no place for a champion.

I believe extra effort, concentration and poise sets me apart from those who might try to defeat me. I am not afraid to fail and will not apologize for giving my all to win.

I believe proper conditioning and mental toughness will allow me to persevere until the end.

I believe my creed, when lived out, will help me handle success, critics and adversity. I accept responsibility and make no excuse whatever happens.

I believe my actions are a reflection of my beliefs. Living my principles will influence the game of life and model a legacy for others to follow.
