And now, some quotes on success.  It’s a cold day – and been another long one. Working hard isn’t easy, and on this late Monday evening wanted to share some thoughts on success:

·         “Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.” Vince Lombardi

·         “Never letting the competition define you. Instead, you have to define yourself based on a point of view you care deeply about.” Tom Chappel

·         “Take chances, take risk and do the right thing – and your odds of winning will go way up.” Self-made billionaire Henry Swieca

·         “Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is.” Zig Ziglar

·         “History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.” Bertie C. Forbes

·         “The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” Thomas Paine

·         “Fear is a habit; so is self-pity, defeat, anxiety, despair, hopelessness and resignation. You can eliminate all of these negative habits with two simple resolves: I can! and I will!” Unknown

·         “If winning isn’t important, why do we spend all that money on scoreboards?” Chuck Coonradt (Something I asked my mother at the age of 6)
