If there’s one thing a coach looks for in a player, it’s heart. If there’s one thing that makes a fighter, it’s heart. More than size or status, the great equalizer and overcomer is heart!

What is heart? It’s absolute commitment. What is commitment? It’s being fully dedicated to a cause or act without regard for loss.

Think about that for a moment. Heart is a level of commitment in which the threat of loss is ignored.

In life, there is loss and there is gain; and everything you do is driven by the threat of loss, or the possibility of gain. But if you’re going to prevail against the harshness of life, you’re going to have to rethink loss and gain.

Because in order to gain certain things, you’re going to have to suffer loss.

  • You have to suffer independence if you want a strong relationship.
  • You have to suffer restraint, if you want to save more money.
  • You have to suffer pleasures, if you want to earn a degree.
  • You have to suffer the absence of friends, if you want to develop skills.
  • You have to suffer dieting, if you want to lose weight.

This is where “heart” comes in, because the more you ignore the threat of loss, the more your commitment will bring you gain.

Someone with heart can exceed their stature. They can endure trials and setbacks. Someone with heart can last longer while others give up. This is why the main thing I do is work to develop stronger people. For my own life, nothing is more important than developing my own internal strength, and that means living lion-hearted!
