While searching for something to motivate my 12 year old girls soccer team, I came across the following poster. I thought it would be perfect for the pregame motivation speech. After all, these were 12 year old girls looking for the next Vince Lombardi motivational speech. The poster shows a large African Lion in the grass as the sun is coming up and in the distance a small Tommy Gazelle. So that is the picture and here is what was scrolled across the bottom of that poster.
"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed...every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle...when the sun comes up, you'd better be running." This morning on the drive in the sun was just coming up and it reminded me of that very fun day many years ago. So the sun is up today, the starting gun has been shot and all of us better get running. By the way, The girls won their championship that day.
