Never give up on the fight until you win the belt.
When you have Nothing to Lose, Remember you are standing at the Winning position. For the hard times have got you stronger, and what you achieve now will be a remarkable trophy for your battles.

The next MVP of the Super Bowl is just as likely to have been a full-time grocery store bagger last year as a Heisman Trophy winner.
When I made my First-Class debut, my first spell was of 10 overs. So I was always used to bowling lot of overs in Ranji Trophy, which always helps.
One of the things that happens in my house on the holidays is after dessert, we sit down to a very ambitious men-versus-women game of Trivial Pursuit. It's brutal. And there's a trophy.
At the combine and at my workouts, I tried to be the perfect player. I tried to promote my strengths and conceal my weaknesses, and on paper, I kind of succeeded: I was the first pick in the draft.

I never looked at my mantel and envisioned an MVP trophy sitting there. This is pretty crazy.

At Leeds, it was to stay up. I was such a young player, Leeds were my club, and we didn't do it. That was a lot to take. At Newcastle, the expectations to win a trophy were enormous. The No. 1 thing everyone up there thinks about is the football club.
Winning a trophy is important for your mentality.
If the award comes with a check, then I want that award. But if it doesn't come with a check, then I'm not that interested. I'd much rather join NASCAR and get a trophy and a check.
I'd rather be in a good position in the playoffs and holding up a World Series trophy than holding up an MVP trophy.
The idea that talent is directly proportional to your trophy cabinet is one I oppose.
It's quite funny in that I once won Rear of the Year at my school! I was about 17 in the sixth form and we used to have an end of year celebration and give out different awards. I even got a little trophy!
