“There could be some boy in the stands watching me play for the first time – I owe it to him to give it my best.”
-JOE DiMAGGIO, after a meaningless game at the end of the season

Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Stephanie O’Brien-Noonan.

You never know.

A true champion is someone drenched in sweat…when no-one is watching.

I don’t know who is reading my blog messages every day, but sometimes I find out.

Stephanie O’Brien-Noonan lives in San Diego. I went to high school with her and haven’t seen her since about 1993. Stephanie just sent me a message saying that she loves my daily messages.

I had no idea she was reading them.

So you never know who is watching you at work.

You never know who is watching you on the tennis court.

You never know who is watching you in school.

But guess what?

It doesn’t matter.

Focus on doing the right things. Be the best person that you can be. Help others.

At the end of your day, I challenge you to be able to say, “I gave it my all today,” and not have any regrets. Then do it the next day.

Those days will turn into weeks. Those weeks into months and those months into years. Then, at the end of your life, you will have left a legacy.

Be the best you can be…for you. And the world.

Abraham Lincoln said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.”

Thanks for reading.
