You have to perform at a consistently higher level than others. That's the mark of a true professional.
You have to stay in shape. My grandmother, she started walking five miles a day when she was 60. She's 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is.
You learn you can do your best when it's hard, even when you're tired and maybe hurting a little bit. It feels good to show some courage.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.
You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Henry David Thoreau
You must not only aim right, but draw the bow with all your might.
You must play boldly to win.
You must remain focused on your journey to greatness.
You need to play with supreme confidence, or else you'll lose again, and then losing becomes a habit.
