“Nothing in life is easy. You can’t wake up one day, announce you’re going to do something, and expect it to be a success. At least not consistently. You have to put time and energy and whatever you’ve got into it. You have to want to do it, want it badly.

I put time, energy, dedication, heart, and soul into it.” Phelps
