Michael Phelps – Dream & Live Video

“People won’t have to deal with the BS that I give them or the crap I put them through. Didn’t eat, didn’t really sleep. I just figured that it was the best thing to do was just to end my life. It’s turned me into believing that there is a power greater than myself and there is a purpose for me on this planet. When I hang my suit up for the final time, put all the medals and the records aside, as long as I can say I did everything I wanted… this is a sport that I fell in love with because my mom put me in for water safety and it turned into this. I know what my career will always mean to me, something that I dreamed of and I’ve lived. At the end of the day, that’s all that matters.”
