A Winner’s Creed
“Winning is not ‘normal’ to us, and those who consistently win follow an ‘abnormal’ path. The discipline, dedication, and sacrifice are incomprehensible to those thousands standing outside looking in, who are capable of joining the winning team, yet unwilling to pay the price of admission. Winners win in a fair effort, on a level playing field because they deserve to win…they willingly pay their dues in full, time after time, after time.”¹
