The Official Champion Music Video has arrived! #championopus1

There's a connectedness that happens when we watch people doing things they absolutely love doing. Seeing other human beings filled with joy and happiness, I think, enables us to more easily see ourselves in others. And as some of us create this positivity for our own lives, it becomes infectious - the rest of us naturally become inspired to create our own joy and happiness too.

The world could use a few more positive images these days, so I am excited to be releasing the music video for a song I wrote called "Champion". I hope this video encourages you to excitedly work on the things you need to work on, rather than focusing on the weaknesses of others. That it urges you to spend time more doing things that you love. That it inspires you to become your best self, because as you become your best self, you are giving others the permission to do the same.

So thank you to the 38 athletes, artists, and survivors featured in this video. I hope your stories transform all of us into more positive, compassionate, and connected people.
