Win Yes But Always Be Courageous

Let me win, but if I cannot win let me be brave in the attempt.

Special Olympics Motto


This is one of my favorite mottos. I think this should be a motto for anyone, at all times. 

Play, work, live, love with the gusto you need to EXCEL at whatever you are doing. And when you do live with such intentionality, then, even if you do not achieve what you want, you will have been brave in the attempt. That is its own reward.

Never Too Late

Leaders must be optimists. We must be full of vital optimism that makes resonant leadership possible. We see the best in people. We see the potential that is waiting to be unleashed. We know there are fresh starts, second chances and new beginnings. 

And we imprint this on those around us.

Who can you encourage today? Who needs to know the power of your optimism about who they may become?

What a privilege to be able to give this to people.
