Failure I can live with. Not trying is what I can't handle!
It's about staying ahead of what happened yesterday. When you just in your mind think...nothing's going to stop me. I don't care how I felt yesterday. I'm gonna go out today and do what I know I can do. If you can tell yourself...no I'm stronger than this, no I'm better than this, no I'm faster than this, no I'm tougher than this. I think you can make it through situations that you never thought possible.
Focus on the victory instead of on everything that could go wrong
No matter what you're trying to do there will be noise in the market... Before the race starts, I'm already focused on the victory
A lot of times in sport if you try to tell the truth it seems like an excuse.
