What Morals Do You Live By?
Every day in the weight room I would think of this. No matter how bad something burned or how bad my cuts stung, I knew that this quote was very truthful and that I could stand by it. My morals stand strong at the basis of, if you start something, finish it. When I was younger, my father was one of my coaches and with that being said, he forced me to finish my conditioning drill on a broken ankle in football. Although the pain was terrible, I finished the drill and by doing that I get to say to this day that I ran on a broken ankle for an entire conditioning drill. What is even more impressive to me is that when the x-ray came in, my ankle was completely snapped and bone fragments were split off the bone over five millimeters away and the doctor said that this damage was done over a three month period or more and that I had to have initially terribly fractured it awhile ago. What I am trying to get at is, if you want something bad enough, you will get it and no matter what happens afterward and you will be happy with the fact that you achieved your goal.
This quote is also another one of my life quotes. I believe that if all college students and people in general lived by this that this world would be much different and this world would be in a much different place than it is now.
