You have to earn it!

A few great quotes from the article:
In the words of the former Crazy Canuck, Jungle Jim Hunter, “too many athletes want to win by default,” as opposed to earning their results.

Martins Dukurs having had an incredible race markedly increases the value of Jon’s medal – maybe not to the public at large, but to Jon. If he won gold because Martins had an equipment failure, it wouldn’t have meant what it does.

There are far to many people (especially my generation and younger) that think things should just be given to them. Whether it be a better grade, a promotion or even a favor, this sense of entitlement is really starting to piss me off. You can not expect to get anywhere or see any results if you do not put in the time and effort required. Sometimes you might even have to do more than the bare minimum to get ahead!

Get your butt off the couch and start training because if you want it, you'll have to earn it!
