Success is not about the number of medals and wins that you acquire throughout your season and lifetime, but about giving it your all and laying everything you have on the floor of competition. You should walk away both mentally and physically tired and be able to say "That was MY best!"
Do not let others knock you down or tell you that you are not as good as someone else. Practice, then practice some more, and then when you feel like you've got it down... Practice even harder! Greatness is not achieved quickly, but is rather a life long goal and commitment to your art and craft.
Good luck this season and hold your heads high at every competition, no matter what. Because at the end of the day, you are all great and you should be proud of what you do!
