Champions keep going when they don’t have anything left in their tank. That’s the difference between the greats. That’s what separates them. When they don’t have no more. When it’s over. When they’re tired. When they’re frustrated. When they’re ready to give up. When they spent their last dime. That’s when they get started. It’s when you have nothing left. It’s when you depleted all your money. When all your energy’s gone. When you have nothing left. That’s when its show time. When you find a way out of no way. When you find breath that you don’t have. When you find energy that did not exist. When you want this thing as bad as you want to breathe.
"I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be outworked. You may be more talented than me. You might be smarter than me. And you may be better looking than me. But if we get on a treadmill together you are going to get off first or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple. I’m not going to be outworked." - Will Smith

"I can’t believe I am standing in this moment. You would be surprised what some people assume I am thinking about on this September day. People always say when you have a “no-no” going you should not talk about it, or even think about it. But really, that is all that’s on my mind and more. Here I am, pitching for the New York Yankees against the Cleveland Indians. How many people get this opportunity? Not many, and those people have not gone through what I have.
