“Whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability. The higher you set the standard for yourself, the higher the self-image. The worst disservice we can do as a coach, as a parent, as a leader, is to say to those around us, “I don’t think you are capable of doing very much-so, I’m going to lower the standard. There are only two types of leaders: those who believe in themselves and lift others up and those with a poor self-image who pull everybody down.” –Lou Holtz

"I say, whatever your philosophy, whatever your standards, whatever your expectations, you establish those on Day One. Don’t waste a second! Let them adjust to you, not the other way around. You can always soften up if you need to, but you can’t get tougher later on." -Bo Schembechler

“Ain’t no man can avoid being born average, but there ain’t no man got to be common.” -Satchel Paige

“Hold yourself to a high standard than anyone expects of you. Never excuse yourself.” -Henry Ward Beecher
“I think it is important to have high expectations of yourself and of those around you.  If you don’t expect to succeed, you won’t.” –Nolan Ryan

"How am I going to live today in order to create the tomorrow I'm committed to?"— Tony Robbins
