" Keymakers: Some people see a closed door and turn away. Others see a closed door, try the knob... if it doesn't work they turn away. Still others see a closed door, try the knob... if it doesn't open, they find a key. If the key doesn't fit, they turn away. A rare few see a closed door, try the knob... if it doesn't open, they find a key. If it doesn't fit, they make one."

This quote was given to my team right before our playoff game for the State championship. It made a lot of us realize that things aren't just handed over and given to you. You actually have to work hard to achieve.

It is defeat that turns gristle into muscle. It is defeat that makes men INVINCIBLE. People never accept the defeat. Defeat will never come to a person until he admits it.

" There is a false belief within our society that to be a winner you have to hit a home run each and every time you go to hit the ball. In reality very few human beings can turn out these sorts of averages. Simply, a winner keeps trying to hit the ball until he hits more than he misses; losers quit."

Roughly from "A Piece of Daddy's Heart", a novel (or possibly autobiography) my aunt was reading when I was much younger. This passage stuck with me for years of competitive ice-skating where expectations are high, demands physically, mentally and financially are numerous, standards of sportsmanship are low, rewards are short lived and many with youth and talent don't persist.

" Motivation is the key to success. Failure is the product of loss of motivation. Together we can learn that not trying and failing, is worse then trying and failing. For when you try and fail, you learn from your mistake and while doing nothing provides, not only empty promises but empty lives."

" What is utmost necessary in life is to fix yourself to the axis of your own life, which is your true nature. Sinewave of life will definitely show its positive and negative excursions with different magnitudes around this axis. If you manage to remain undeviated from your true nature or principles, no positive or negative peak can move you from there. Remember sinewave is meant to change always and not the axis."

Experience all the events, conclude the lesson and go forward but never disturb the focus of your real nature around which your life goes on unwinding. Be always like what your core insists.
