There are 72 steps that lead to the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I ran up those iconic steps just like Rocky training for fight. I jumped around like I just won my own heavyweight championship. I'm sure this is quite amusing for those of you who know I'm all of five feet tall, and no where near a heavyweight soaking wet with layers. The mind is an amazing thing. It can make you think you are the heavyweight champion of the world, and it can make you feel isolated and defeated. It can play tricks on you. Most athletes will tell you that training is as much mental as it physical. Victors train their mind. Triumph does not come without training. Nor does it come without trials. No matter what you are going through, it is the training ground for your triumph.
