Watching the Olympics reinforces everything I believe about hard work, desire and never taking NO for an answer. Even if you give something 200% effort, you may not come out a winner, but you will never, ever be a loser! For those that do come out with the gold, it is never, ever luck. Mr. Phelps, you are now stand in a league all your own. (Guess the bong hits we saw you taking, back in college didn’t hurt at all…just saying).
I found this quote this morning and though it’s a bit crude coming from me, I love it. If I had just a penny (forget a nickel) for every excuse I have heard, I would never have to work again….But still I probably would 🙂
