Competitive sayings

Some time ago I ventured into the bowels of a stadium and happened upon a hallway filled with 'motivational' plaques lining the wall as far as the eye could see.  I stopped, took out my cell phone and began to take pictures of several signs and later copied the writings. I have listed some of them below.

The signs' purpose was to motivate that schools' athletes to do better, push harder, to not be satisfied with mediocrity,  to give more, etc.  The signs were posted to note how one wins which only comes from persistence, hard work and execution.

I thought of these signs as I walked the halls locked in chastity. I took the time to remember them, not because I wanted to motivate some athletic team but because they reminded me of what it takes to be a sub - hard work, persistence, diligence and seeking perfection just as much as it speaks to Dommes that must exhibit those same qualities while supervising the sub they love.  It takes much of the same qualities to be a Domme and submissive as it takes to excel in sport.

I hope that one of two of these sayings may resonate with you as a sub - or as the owner of a sub.  There is much that applies to competition that also applies to the D/s lifestyle.  Enjoy the day.
