“Great moments, are born from great opportunity.” – Coach Herb Brooks, USA Men’s Hockey Team Coach that defeated the Russian Hockey team in the 1980 Winter Olympics.
As leaders we must put ourselves in situations where opportunity is. We cannot be seen standing passive.
Great locker room material with Victorious Leader.
Also, if you get a two minute break watch the following youtube clip. This is really good stuff.
I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon…if I can.
I seek opportunity – not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk: to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dollar.
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence: the thrill of fulfillment to the state calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence, not my dignity for a handout.
I will never cover before any master or bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand tall, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefits of my creations, to face the world boldly and say:
“This is what I have done.”
