Former baseball superstar, Mark Grace once said, “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.”
Character goes a long way in my book. I just lost all respect for Grace. Well, not all, there’s always the chance that he was misquoted.
But here’s the point – I would rather my players give it their all without cheating and lose, than cheat and win. If they make it, they make it. If not, they will go on to be successful in business, art, music or cooking.
Cheaters cheat because they want to win more than anything else.
What are you playing for, the trophy?
Here, I’ll give you one. Will you be happy? I doubt it.
Winners never cheat and cheaters never win.
Somewhere along the line, as a society, we started focusing on the result; focusing on ourselves.
Well, we headed down the wrong path.
The key is staying in the present moment – enjoying the process. Focusing on helping others and making a difference.
People say nice guys finish last, but I disagree.
Nice guys are winners before the competition begins.
