I am the champion,
I am the contender.

I have enjoyed a couple of wins,
I have enjoyed a couple of losses.

I have picked the brain of worker bees,
I have picked the brain of bosses.

I am the champion,
I am the contender.

I have encountered obstacles,
I have prevailed.

I have been successful,
I have failed.

I am the champion,
I am the contender.

I have failed,
I face my fears – I fail every day.

I have failed a lot,
I have learned a lot – so it’s okay.

I am the champion,
I am the contender.

When I fail,
I’m forced to think in a new way.

When I fail,
I’m forced to win in a new way.

I am the champion,
I am the contender.

My failures let me know that I am not perfect;
and that’s okay –
my shortcomings have taught me to test myself every day.

My failures let me know there is no competition;
they remind me to go hard each day –
my ambitions remind me to tell myself “you will become a better man today, than the one you were yesterday.”
