Winning is Everything This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Winning is everything.

To a true competitor,

a true athlete,

an honest man,

a worthy opponent.

Winning is everything.

It is why teams compete.

It is why fans pay to watch.

Winning is pride.

It is what players live for,

what players dedicate their lives to.

True winners fight throughout the game

to be the one to score that winning goal.

If you don’t respect winning,

you’re not a true athlete,

and if you do not fight to win,

you don’t deserve it.

Winning is everything,

winning is victory,

winning is success,

and to all those real competitors,

winning is life

This really inspired me to try and beat the labels that have been put on me by coaches and teamates, and I would just like to thank you. My favorite part is that made me relize that I just don't try hard enough is, "If you do not fight to win, you don't deserve it."
