It takes a lot of courage to do the things that you must do.

It doesn’t mean you won’t feel scared, some things really test you!

I didn’t win the race today, but know this much is true –

Because I did it anyway, means I’m a winner too!

Means I’m a winner too.


I’m a winner.

You’re a winner.

There is no need to fear.

I’m a winner.

You’re a winner.

There are no losers here!
