Believe in Yourself

Believe in yourself,
For when you are young
There is so much in life left to be done.

Believe in yourself
For when you are old
The dreams you have dreamed
Are more precious than gold.

Believe in yourself,
That when you are dead
Others will follow the trails you have tread.

The average player sprints until the breath in him is gone,
But a champion has the iron will that makes him carry on.
For rest, the average player begs when limp his muscles grow,
But a champion runs on leaden legs; his spirit makes him go.
The average player is complacent when he does his best to score,
But a champion gives his very best and then he gives a little more.
