Championships are earned NOT given!

There are some at class now that may earn their first herding championship this year and do not realize how close they are. This is because of the hurdles they must first overcome to get there. Not understanding that champions are made, formed by powers greater than ourselves. Molded by challenges, hurdles they must overcome that  produce an inner change, educating the soul on what it takes to rise above it all, then testing the spirit of those that have taken up the challenge.

I encourage you to take this voyage. Persevere and keep getting up. Learn and go at it again. Step on the excuses because that is where they belong, under your feet. You can become greater than you are today if you do not give up on tomorrow. Wait and that tomorrow may never come.
