It's Training Camp time in the NFL - The National Football League.
Seems there are two types of participants vying for a job.
Those that are competing with the competition.
Those that are competing with themselves: those players who are delivering their personal best to shine and make their mark. These guys aren't so much thinking about the competition but rather asking themselves -
What can I do to excel? How can I prove to myself my usefulness?
These guys are not looking outside of themselves for affirmation of their self-worth, they are creating it from the inside out.
When you move through your life, are you busy checking out the competition?
Or are you creating your life from the inside out, day by day?
Training Camp ain't over till it's over, know what I mean?
