NOW, Y’ALL HAVE KNOWN ME FOR A WHILE, AND FOR A LONG TIME NOW YOU’VE BEEN HEARING ME TALK ABOUT BEING PERFECT.
WELL, I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND SOMETHING. TO ME, BEING PERFECT IS NOT ABOUT THAT SCOREBOARD OUT THERE. IT’S NOT ABOUT WINNING. IT’S ABOUT YOU AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR FRIENDS. BEING PERFECT IS ABOUT BEING ABLE TO LOOK YOUR FRIENDS IN THE EYE AND KNOW THAT YOU DIDN’T LET THEM DOWN BECAUSE YOU TOLD THEM THE TRUTH. AND THAT TRUTH IS THAT YOU DID EVERYTHING THAT YOU COULD. THERE WASN’T ONE MORE THING YOU COULD HAVE DONE.
CAN YOU LIVE IN THAT MOMENT AS BEST YOU CAN, WITH CLEAR EYES AND LOVE IN YOUR HEART? WITH JOY IN YOUR HEART?
IF YOU CAN DO THAT, GENTLEMEN, THEN YOU’RE PERFECT.
