"In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle stand like a rock." Thomas Jefferson.
How many of us just follow the flow with all corners of life? How many of us act more like a herd of cattle than finding out own way? It sure is a lot easier to do just as everyone else....but sometimes ok most of the time doing the right thing means also doing the hard thing...Going against the grain is not easy...nor is it meant too be or else everyone would be doing it. The same goes for being the person in front that people follow...its not a simple and easy job...that's why I am a firm believer not just anyone can be such a person. In sports esp...you don't just have anyone leading...it takes a special person...A good leader gets people to do things without speaking a word...a great leader is a someone you don't even know is leading you...the best leader most of the time has no clue they are leading they are just doing. Life is like sports in so many ways. So why not apply the things we have learned on the court and in the gym into a much bigger playing field and game... the game of life... I am positive you will find you carry even more tools to succeed in this life. And maybe just maybe we will start leading our own lives instead of following like a herd of cattle...
