"Share something great."
"Do or do not, there is no try." - Yoda, in The Empire Strikes Back

And eternity in an hour."
- William Blake
"I believe in you."
"I'm pleased, but I'm not satisfied." - Sonny Lane, my high school basketball coach
"You can't win 'til you're not afraid to lose." - Jon Bon Jovi, in Just Older
"The magic is in the work."
"Chance favors the prepared mind." - Louis Pasteur
"Trust the process."
"The game honors toughness." (Often attributed to Brad Stevens, but I think I've read that Don Meyer said it earlier.)
"Negative comments about others usually say more about us than the other person." Often, they cannot control who they are or what they do. What's my excuse?
"Be the positive dog." (Jon Gordon has written a series of inspiring books including Soup, The Hard Hat, Training Camp, The Energy Bus, You Win in the Locker Room First, and The Positive Dog)
"The summit is not the only place on the mountain." We should understand that the greatest risk often occurs near the summit and the final few hundred feet has cost many their lives.
