Quote reblogged from Chill like a Turtle with 725 notes

As an athlete, you’ll never feel bad about losing, but what you will feel bad about is underperforming. That’s a real thing and it happens a lot when we don’t live up to our potential. And that keeps you up at night and can give you years and years of regret. It could be a relationship, it could be a homework assignment, or it could be an athletic competition. If you don’t go out and perform to the best of your ability, it will really bother you.

I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.

I love when you step on to the starting line no matter how nervous you are, how bad you’re shaking, all the injuries you’re imagining, and being pretty sure you have to pee, as soon as the gun goes off you forget everything, and you just run.

Quote reblogged from All Day, Everyday with 195 notes

'How’ is always more important than ‘what.’ See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.

fallschirmjager:

A Panther of Panzer-Brigade 111 enters Bures-sur-Yvette on 20 September 1944.The heavy foliage cover was a standard precaution in the French campaign. Along many of the major roads, hundreds of pull-out air attack positions had been prepared. If a ‘Jabo’ was spotted the vehicle would pull into the position and remain until any sightings of Allied planes or units were out of sight.
