Earn Your Respect

Ever heard the statement that respect is never given, only earned? I believe that not only is this true but it is also the way it should be. The statement"Earn Your Respect" has a little more to it than initially meets the eye. More often than not we emphasize the word earn suggesting that there is a price to be paid when success is the goal. Again, this is certainly true, but I feel maybe not the most important meaning of this statement. What if we look at it as "earn Your respect"? Isn't this what we are really after in the first place, our own respect. As athletes, most of us are wired this way. We have a desire to excel, to go farther and be better. I am suggesting that you remember that the first and often hardest person to impress will more than likely be yourself. If you are willing to put the time in to truly deserve not only success but also the confidence that should accompany it, you're starting to have something special. Oddly enough, I am talking about putting together a work ethic and deserving your success on labor day. What will you be doing with your day? Can you take the time to attempt to impress your self?
