Mia Hamm Quotes
True champions aren’t always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.
The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.Celebrate what you’ve accomplished, but raise the bar a little higher each time you succeed.Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don’t settle for them.I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.I’ve worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.If you don’t love what you do, you won’t do it with much conviction or passion.
You can’t just beat a team, you have to leave a lasting impression in their minds so they never want to see you again.
