Some days you wake up and realize you’ve been dealt a sh$t hand. At this point you’ve two options, 1) fold and chalk it up as a waste (I avoid this simply based on the principle that we have LIMITED days and we currently have no way to acquire more, 0r 2) play the hand dealt. Maybe things aren’t exactly what you wanted and that can be a tough realization. Make the best of what’s there, turn it around, and give it your all. I’ll end this with one of my favorite quotes, shown to me by a former coach:

“To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift” – Steve Prefontaine
