My college basketball coach had a sign up in lockeroom that read:
"A PERSON SHOW'S WHO THEY ARE....BY WHAT THEY DO....WITH WHAT THEY HAVE"
It's been quite a few years but I've always remembered those words.
They've served me well many times. Tough games as "runt" on team....school....military service....family....my business....and just life in general.
To me it means victory doesn't always...or have to...go to person who is bigger, faster, smarter, richer, more educated, more experienced, better equiped, and so on.
Victory goes to person who makes most of whatever skills, values, tools, and circumstances they've been blessed with.
Look at our industry and you'll see it doesn't take a Harvard MBA or birth with a silver spoon to be successful. It doesn't give you an edge.
