Fight Like a Champion

"Without fear, without doubt, without discomfort... what is there for a person to overcome?" (Serena Williams)

This past weekend, at Wimbledon, Serena Williams lost in the women's finals. But that's not the story.

That Serena was playing at all, much less playing this well, was the true victory. After nearly dying days after childbirth, spending the first six weeks of her daughter's life bed-ridden, Serena defied major odds to even play in this tennis major. Just ten months old, her daughter watched Serena come in 2nd at Wimbledon.

Serena Willams has won 24 major championships, but her greatest victories are not against tennis opponents. Her real opponents are fear and doubt and discomfort. She also battles against depression and ego and complacency.

What will you fight to overcome this week?
