These are quotes from one of my atheletic coaches.


Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You learn a lot from it.

Don't be a spectator, don't let life pass you by.

How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.

I can't believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.

I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.

I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You learn a lot from it.

If he's got golf clubs in his truck or a camper in his driveway, I don't hire him.

If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven't done anything today.

If you burn your neighbors house down, it doesn't make your house look any better.

If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.

In the successful organization, no detail is too small to escape close attention.

It is a fine thing to have ability, but the ability to discover ability in others is the true test.

It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.

Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

No one has ever drowned in sweat.

Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.

The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely the one who dropped it.

You'll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him.

You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.

When all is said and done, more is said than done.
