Competitive Spirit

Don't look at the scoreboard - focus on the process- not the result - the results will take care of themselves.
Climb the mountain, but watch your step - especially as you get closer to the goal.
Don't worry about mouse crap, when you're up to your ears in elephant crap - focus on the big picture.
Focus doesn't mean tunnel vision
Focus on the center of the target
Lack of focus is a result of a lack of experience
Success is never final, and failure is never fatal
When an opportunity presents itself, approach the challenge, not with concern about the outcome, but with the courage to do your best.  Find honor in HOW you compete.
Proper preparation prevents piss poor performance
