You’re a Champion! Don’t Think You Are, Know You Are.


Rise!

It’s time to lace up, head out the front door, and do something that will get you one step closer to bringing your ideas into concrete reality.

Losing is not in your playbook today. You have your mind fixed on winning. You’re amped! Yeah, that’s right.

The other day I was watching the movie Just Wright on DVD. It’s a classic in my book. I love that movie. During the credits a song with the chorus “I’m a Champion” caught my ear.


I immediately Googled it and found out it is a joint by none other than Queen Latifah–originally as part of 2008 AT&T Team USA soundtrack. Don’t know how I missed this song but it’s officially in my I-pod rotation.

You’re a Champion! Play it. Jam to it. Read the lyrics. Then get up and do something to show it. Don’t Think You Are, Know You Are.





Lyrics
I'm so secure with who I am
And I'm a champion for sure
I'm a champ oh yes I am

But what I thought about
When those people put me down
They can laugh for now
But watch it when I turn this thing around
I know, I believe
Aint nobody gonna do it but me
I'm fly, no lie
I'm the truth baby ask me why

I'm a champion (repeat)

Keep your head up
They hatin' cause you majored in minor
Gonna celebrate like you won the finals
Hold your trophy up in your parade in your honor
And pour some champagne and put your glass to the sky
'Cause you a champion
You're a champion

I'm a champion (repeat)
