What Makes A Champion?

From the Journal of the S.O.B.:

I had quite a day today watching the coverage on the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary and the Wimbledon championship. Although very different events, they each brought out the best in the people involved.

All the unsung heroes of the Apollo mission were incredible. Watching the impact of the women who sewed the space suits was mesmerizing and to see how many new thought processes had to go into making the mission a reality was stunning. Then to go on and see the fortitude and strength of Federer and Djokovic was mind blowing. Non-stop for hours, each played a thrilling game.

And so that’s why I’m asking, what makes a champion? In my humble opinion, I think most people are champions in their every day life when they make the decisions they do to raise families, lead people, invent something new and just be the positive, helping, caring individuals they are.

So, I ask you, what do you do on a daily basis to be a champion in someone’s eyes? And yes, yours as well!
