Any Given Sunday: between winning and losing

Being an English gent.  I really don’t understand what is going on in (American) Football.  But I know this – it seems to make a fantastic subject for films and has some great “inspirational speech” scenes

Here is Al Pacino in Any Given Sunday.

So how does this inspire?

Whether it it sport, fitness or goal setting – this scene teaches us a lot.

When I run, I imagine Al Pacino talking about the inch – the space between me and the guy in front  I fight for those inches to catch up and and then gain inches in front of them.

The inch represents are time, every ‘inch’ we spend investing in are goals makes us better – between Winning and Losing.

It’s not always easy – we tear ourselves apart, risking injury, exhausting ourselves and failure to achieve.

But that effort makes us a better person in the long run.
