It is similar to a wrestling match…
1st period: The first round usually go to the person with the most natural ability which is quickness, strength, and balance.
2nd period: The round goes to the individual who has the skills and techniques, drilled them, and gotten into shape.
3rd period: Finally, the third period goes to the man with the most heart. When the strength, ability, and knowledge have all equalized from fatigue, that person is the one who can reach down and still go, pick himself up and go again. Heart is the greatest asset of them all!
As you can see, you can determine 2 out of 3 of the periods, you can’t control your natural ability (1), BUT YOU CAN DETERMINE how had you work (2) and the heart you have (3).
