The following passage comes from "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth" by John Maxwell. He does not recall who originally wrote this but it struck a chord with him -- and me as well...a great passout for your team.
There is no success without sacrifice. If we succeed without sacrifice, then it is because someone who went before us made the sacrifice. If you sacrifice and don't see success, then someone who follows will reap success from your sacrifice.
