Whenever you have some journey you’re going to have to change. You’re going to have to learn how to change the way you view yourself. You’re going to have to change your behavior. You’re going to have to change your discipline. You’re going to have to change your focus. You’re going to have to transform into something you’re not. And then you’re going to have to kill that thing and then transform into some other thing. When a caterpillar turns into a butterfly the caterpillar is gone now. It had to transform itself and that probably wasn’t pleasant. So when you take the journey you’re choosing to experience a degree of pain. You’re choosing to have that pain harden you.

"Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It’s being able to take it as well as dish it out. That’s the only way you’re going to get respect from the players." - Larry Bird

Fox was supported on his run by Doug Alward, who drove the van and cooked meals.

Every single day when you wake up you’ve got two options. You can look at the clock and hit the snooze and go back to bed and dream about what you want to have and dream about what you want to be. Or you can look at that snooze button, kick that clock, get up and go pursue your dreams.


"To simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed." - Sidney Poitier

Not only is it possible for you to have your dream but it’s necessary. It’s necessary that you have it. That you work on it. That you develop yourself. That you go for what is yours in the universe. You decide I’m not going to settle for this. This is not going to be it for my life. I deserve more than this. That will start making you do some stuff. A lot of people go to work everyday miserable and all they do is just talk about how miserable they are but they don’t do anything about it. - Les Brown

"Every day when I get on the floor I give it my all. Because you never know what tomorrow holds." - Russell Westbrook

All or nothing.


'You push it a little bit further and say “Let's see what happens.” Normally when you say let's see what happens, something good would happen. That's when I associated, when you felt the worst, I always associated that good things were on the horizon. By and large they happen that way.’

"So you wish to conquer in the Olympic games, my friend? And I too, by the Gods, and a fine thing it would be. But first mark the conditions and the consequences, and then set to work. You will have to put yourself under discipline; to eat by rule, to avoid cakes and sweetmeats; to take exercise at the appointed hour whether you like it or no, in cold and heat; to abstain from cold drinks and from wine at your will; in a word, to give yourself over to the trainer as to a physician. Then in the conflict itself you are likely enough to dislocate your wrist or twist your ankle, to swallow a great deal of dust, or to be severely thrashed, and, after all these things, to be defeated." - Epictetus

This Greek Stoic philosopher reminds why most of us ain’t about that Olympic athlete life.
