I will be as good, as great, as I can be.
I will try hard, harder, every day. I will push myself.
I will test myself. I will have the willpower to never give up. There is no "can't," there is no "impossible." There is only "not yet." But someday. I know it.
I will learn, I will perfect, I will not collect.
I will study, I will train, I will never disrespect.
I will honor. I will believe. I will live. Breath. Be.
I will be what I learn. I will be what I teach. I will do it better next time. I will have dedication. I will foster positive energy. I will inspire others. I will never give up. I will always train harder. I will understand, no matter how long it takes. I will know the "why" and the "how." The what to do when.
I will create, improvise, apply. Ask. Ask questions, never question. Respect. I will be loyal,
I will be respectful of others, no matter what.
I will harbor no ill will.
I will harbor no negative thoughts.
When I train, I will be positive, motivated.
I want to. I can. I will.
