“I want to be one of the guys, but I also want to be ‘the’ guy, the guy that can go out there and they can rely on in crunch time. I’m going to be the guy that they know will show up every day, every game, every play and show up on a consistently great level.” –Robert Griffin III

Who we be — or have the opportunity to be — when the going gets tough, or grueling, or pressured says a lot.

It’s been said that the greatest inspiration is the deadline.

It can also be the greatest test of what’s inside.

Whether we default to being “great” or, more likely, have the opportunity to develop that muscle, isn’t it a wonderful blessing to simply be able to get to that gym every now and then?

Got crunch time?

“I admire people who are good fighters, guts in a person. Not just keeling over when things go tough. It’s only when it comes to crunch time that people’s true character comes out.” –Virginia Wade
