The song from Eminem, Lose Yourself, emphasises a big event and only having one chance to make the most of the opportunity presented to you… It is one of my favourite motivational songs and it always gets me pumped up before a race, I hope it does the same for you!
This week is all about OPPORTUNITY for me as I head to Fina World Masters Swimming Championships in Riccione, Italy.
Here are a few excerpts from the song.
“He’s nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
He opens his mouth, but the words won’t come out
He’s chokin, how everybody’s jokin now
The clock’s run out, time’s up, over bloah
Snap back to reality, Oh there goes gravity”
“Better go capture this moment and hope it don’t pass him”
“You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo”
