Muhammad Ali said in so many words that to be a winner you must have more than skill, you must be saturated with something within called "will".
What's in you?
How do you react when you’re happy? Do you laugh, jump up and down, call all your friends, or smile from ear to ear?
What happens when you are frustrated? Do you close up and not talk, stay away from people, speak with firmness, or react with short snappy responses?
What do you do when you are angry? Do you use words to put others down, hit things to release the tension, avoid life by sleeping, or become engorged in something to divert your attention?
How you handle your "circumstances" reveals what you have absorbed into your mind. Circumstances have a way of pushing out what's within. Despite the common thought, you can control what drips off your lips and spreads from your reactions. Saturate your mind with positiveness. Surround yourself with people that know how to stay calm in the middle of adversity. Mentally upload things that will help fulfill your dreams and goals over the challenges you face. Edgar A. Guest said it this way, “It’s when you are hardest hit that you must not quit”. The only way to keep releasing good when you are hit is to be mentally saturated with a clear focus of "good will" to get back up to preserver to the end.
