JIM TRESSEL ON HOPE

Jim Tressel on the subject of "hope" -- from "The Winner's Manual."

Hope is an unseen ingredient in any successful endeavor.

Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.

The type of hope I want to instill in my players is proactive and is based on reality, not on fantasy or wishful thinking. It’s not the kind if hope a person might have when buying a lottery ticket with the last of the grocery money. Instead, it’s a constant believe in the work that’s already been done, the planning that’s in place, and the potential that lies ahead.

"Hope is one of the principal springs that keeps mankind in motion." -Andrew Fuller
