Off course I go to a competition to win, otherwise it would not work. And yes, in my head I am always busy with the question how do I get better results, what do I need an what do I need to train.

Although life isn`t always about getting the best results,  I made this page anyway: to look back, see how far I have come in the past 7 years and that’s what makes me proud on myself. An got me understanding that : Yet in life, being 1 % better than yesterday is already winning. Doing everything in your own power to get the best out of yourself is more important. You are your own competition.

 “Being the best is not so important, doing the best is all the matters.”

 The adventures managed, the people met , the new things learned, the special places I found and the road followed. The things I learned again, the people I meet again, the skills I still have and develop. My road from 0 to the best version out of myself: that’s what this page remembers me off. Every time I wanted to give up on something, I look back and see how far I have come. And so can you!

It’s about the effort, managing the process, the hard work you do to reach your own goal.”

Reaching a goal is not where you’re capable off, it’s about what you are willing to endure. Nothing comes easy, but… everything is possible, if you really put you mind to it, believe in yourself, you will get there, somehow! After al WINNING means: that you`re willing to go longer, work harder and give more than anyone else. So today I do what others won’t so tomorrow I accomplish what others can`t.

“Never give up, for that is just the place an time that the tide will turn”

Because sometimes dreams do come true! an yes, I do celebrate every win 🙂
