A Show Me Strength athlete’s life is lived through a code of ethics, a series of mantras that defines our journey.
The Show Me Strength athlete…
Transcends the impossible.
Is a dreamer.
There is no such thing as a dream that extends beyond reach. Becoming a Major Leaguer, an all-American, or the best damn CEO in the country is never out of the question or in the realm of the impossible.
Is a leader
Everyone is afraid to stand alone. A Show Me Strength athlete differs in that instead of letting this fear inhibit, fear is embraced and used to fuel the strength to lead and inspire others. If no one follows, pride is taken in being the lone wolf.
Denies the existence of limits
These athletes understand that only through pushing themselves mentally and physically beyond what is thought possible, into the depths of the unknown, will they ever find out who they truly are. They forge their legacy in the unknown.
Is a grinder
This athlete may or may not be the most talented on the field but is without a doubt the hardest working. If asked to do ten sprints, he does twenty. If asked to run through a brick wall, he asks how many. This athlete refuses to be denied because of lack of work ethic.
Evolves from failure
A Show Me Strength athlete despises that failure is a reality, but is able to grow from it; learning from every falter and becoming stronger, smarter, faster, with the rise that inevitably follows each time he’s knocked down.
Is a fighter
These athletes fight for themselves, their family, and their friends. They never leave anyone behind. They treat their teammates and coworkers as their own family and would do anything to ensure the successes of not only themselves but of those around them.
Respects everyone, but fears no one.
Never ceases to strive for personal perfection.
These athletes do not compare themselves to others for it is a fruitless endeavor. They instead envision the best possible version of themselves and do not rest until it is who they become. In doing so, they inspire others to follow their path, as they forge their own.
Is the epitome of strong
Strong in body, in mind, and in spirit. Strength is the lens in which they view the world.
Is in relentless pursuit of what is important within them.
These athletes maximize every ounce of ability they possess. This pursuit can only be relinquished when every bit of the soul has been exhausted in this chase.
Chases a legacy.
These athletes acknowledge their own mortality and seek to create a lasting impression on all they encounters. They may not live forever, but they will leave their mark on this world, and in this way transcend death.
Embraces the struggle
The struggle that comes with pursuing anything meaningful in life. It is the challenge that allures, transforming what’s easy into something intolerable. This athlete acknowledges that anything worth chasing is worth struggling for.
Embrace. Fight. Prevail.
We live our life by those words. In the mantra of mantras, we are proud to be defined by that one.
Join us on the journey. The world needs to learn the Show Me Strength Mantra.
