What actually drives and motivates you in becoming a winner?

Life is a sport. Fight sport. On some stage you win , on another you loose . That’s basically the same what was said in that Rocky Balboa movie in 2006 where all what it matters is how strong you are.

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place. It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! ”

Being a number one champion for some it’s just a reason to prove something for themselves. Though I believe there is no need to prove anything to anybody when everything is already proved; bad mouths will exist always so it shouldn’t really bother. That’s simple : we do it this way, can you do it better.. so, what can be a question then?

A winner it’s not always when you come first. Sometimes you win even being on the second place of pedestal; when you know you have tried your best and learned from your mistakes – means you are clean front of yourself. So now this is also a question how ready you are to face a defeat and never give up.

In sport sometimes an athlete wins with a help of judges which brings up a question how honest to himself this winner is. A good opposite example though, probably will be that fight when Alla Ivashkevich got that title win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Yes, regarding to judges score cards she won the fight, though she didn’t feel like she really did. So even being front of her home crowd she found forces in herself and denied a World title belt and gave it to her opponent. But this happens once in a million, no ?

That will that pushes you in being a leader and success in life, sport…practically in anything , I suppose , is based on your aim, final goal. When you know exactly what you want and what needs to be done or when you desire it that bad, so you are ready to make impossible happen.

It is important to have a good support team, someone to give a good advise and when the right thing is being done… and a victory is always there.
