When the weather is cold, or the crucial race seems to be too distant, or simply if you keep on making questions to yourself, instead of giving answers, these two inspirational speeches by John Doman could be really helpful for your motivation, whatever your favourite sport is.
The first one is about second places and here's my favourite quote: "Knock knock, who's there? The guy that finished second. The guy that finished second who? Exactly...".
The second one may be a bit more intense, if possible, even if too resonant in certain passages. My favourite quote is: "The only thing, the only thing you can count on at any given moment is you! It's you versus them. You versus no. You versus can't. You versus next year, last year, statistics, excuses! [...] You versus the odds. It's you versus second place. Clock is ticking, lets see what you got.".
