Winning through Losing

"The hallmark of a true champion is in the attitude they express when they lose. It's easy to be gracious when we win, but to do so when we lose shows that we know our value is more than what we accomplish." -Tad Inoue

What a wild weekend at the Olympia! I got lots of great memories this year but I wanted to give a special shout to Mr Olympia, Brandon Curry! While he ended up getting second this year he is a consummate gentleman and champion! I have known Brandon since he was an amateur and he has always been this way with me. 

Brandon Curry, brother thank you for being the role model we need to see more of in sports. Your gracious and you appreciate your place in this world. You may have lost this small battle, but I know the war isn’t over yet for you!  I can’t wait to see what you bring in the future!

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
