"To be a champion...
...there's a lot of sacrifice, a lot of struggle, a lot of suffering...
"Everyone's doing the same thing. What's the difference between me, and the other guy that's ranked No. 2 in the world?"
"It's having the heart that's able to match your ability. What's your heart?
YOUR PASSION, YOUR WILL, YOUR DESIRE, YOUR DREAM. YOUR HEART IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO SUFFER FOR TO OBTAIN. THAT'S YOUR HEART.
NOW... YOUR ABILITY
is something that's a gift that you have that's either God-given, or it's something that you've worked for your whole life that you've developed and
BECOME A MASTER AT IT."
"If I were to describe my life to anybody, I'd say it's been very adventurous. But I wouldn't have wished it any other way."
