In honor of my friend and mentor, Coach Dale Brown, who celebrates his birthday today, I will post a few blogs with things I have learned from him. Below are some of the wise words that he has shared with so many:
"One will not find the true fiber of a man in times of prosperity or success, but only in his resiliency and attitude through times of failure and adversity."
"If you let adversity whip you it's because you allowed it."
"You can or you can't. It's all up to you and what you think."
"The greatest power in the world is your power to choose."
"A good attitude and being honest to yourself will relieve you of your self-doubts."
"The boldness of faith gives persistence the ability to whip anything."
"Failure will never overtake you if your determination to succeed is strong enough."
"Defeat depresses some, but stimulates others to greater heights."
"Confront your fears head on. Ask yourself what is the worst thing that could happen? Failure will not kill you, but fearing it might."
"You are a success if you have done your very best."
"If you are good, be better."
"Large doses of love sprinkled with discipline is true leadership."
"The best potential of ME is WE." (my favorite)
