WEEK 2 – JULY 2008
I was so lucky this weekend to watch the Men’s Wimbledon Final where Rafael Nadal dethroned five-time champion Roger Federer as King of Wimbledon with an epic 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5/7), 6-7 (8/10), 9-7 win in one of the greatest Grand Slam finals of all time. Unfortunately there can only be one winner but both players are truly outstanding champions.
Inches make a champion.
Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.
Champions keep playing until they get it right.

And one last word from the new Wimbledon Champion!
I never gave up believing I would win this title.
Only you possess the strength within yourself to be triumphant. It is not what surrounds you or who persuades you that creates your success. It is you own determination and drive to be the greatest. Anything in this world is possible. Dream it. Believe it. See it. And just do it.
Become a Champion too!
Wishing you quintessential success
