Stay Hungry

I have always been a competitive person, just ask my brother. I don't know that I have always had something to prove to others, I do think I have always had a lot to prove to myself. I never did well with most sports, I definitely didn't do well in school, but I thrived on the race track when I was racing cars, not always winning, but always right there.

More recently I found competitive ice fishing, and now that's an addiction, it really is. I feed off the anticipation, the game planning and preparation. I have not always found the same success on the ice as I did on the track, but maybe that's the drive I need.

I can't wait for Wednesday, the day Wayne and I take off to South Dakota for the next chance at collecting the coveted "Wood", the trophy they give out for first, second or third in the North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC) events. That will be the next chance to push myself. Look, I know it's just a silly ice fishing tournament, it's not saving the world, I get it, but it's my track now, that's my arena. Everyone has one, be it at work, in the gym or where ever you push yourself to be better, that's the ice for me.

So like the photo depicts, I'm hungry. I'm hungry for success, I'm hungry to prove to myself I can do it, I'm hungry to show you too, that i can do it. Sure it's fun, it has to be or it's not worth it, but it's a battle ground on game day, and I am ready to fight.
