" True leaders are not those who strive to be first, but those who are first to strive and give their all for the success of the team. True leaders are first to see the need, envision the plan, and empower the team for action. By the strength of the leader's commitment, the team is unleashed."

This is a great little quote because I live by it. I train for baseball before practice and after practice, when there is nobody telling me to run or lift. I do it all on my own. It's called character.

" Success is knowing what you are made up of, in spite of what occurs to you. Greatness is a function of who you are and what you have. The difference between you and your place of glory is an event. Great men have dreams; great dreams rule the world. You are only a thought away from your dream and a step away from your greatness. Take a walk Sir!"

" When you strike out you have a decision to make. You can either get back up there or you can walk off on your team. If you get back up there and strike out again, at least you know you tried. But if you walk off, you know that you cut you and your team short. You will also have to wonder what might have happened if you tried and tried again."

" Don't ever give up on a dream due to the amount of time it will take to achieve it. The time will pass anyway."

I heard of my grandfather's remark to my dad when he came home one day and announced that he was dropping out of college. My dad, being a police officer on monthly rotating shifts and being married with a child (myself), was having a hard time with school and work and family. When he advised my grandfather of his intentions, he told his dad that by the time he graduates, he would be 35 years old. My grandfather, being a man of very few words, simply replied, "you're going to be 35 anyway." I use this saying every time I deal with a person who has yet to conquer the barriers of their dreams. A police officer myself, I am able to help those who are afraid of those hidden obstacles in their future.
