The Empty Stadium

Would you continue to compete in an empty stadium?

Imagine fighting the greatest battle of your life with no fans…

No loved ones screaming your name from the bleachers.

No cheers from the crowd.

No TV cameras.

No reporters.

No source to witness the outcome unfold.

Just you and the invisible enemy.

Would you have the integrity to show up and give it your everything anyway?

In this world there will be far more doubters than believers.

Believe anyway.

Both critics and fans may completely abandon you in your race.

Run anyway.

After all, it’s not about them.

It’s about you.

It’s about your Truth.

It’s about seeing the unseen, and remembering that you are not truly alone.

You do not compete for a crown of temporal gain.

You compete for the crown that will last for eternity.

Don’t allow an empty stadium to discourage you.

Continue to exhaust yourself in what you believe.

This is the key to life’s ultimate victory.

“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.” (Vince Lombardi)
