Quote featured on print:
They want the ball – the great ones. They want it when stakes are both low and high. When the odds are against, and when the odds are for them. Selfish? Hardly. This is a special kind of recognition: Understanding that in any situation, a great moment is one second, minute, hour from occurring, and that it needs to be defined, and that in order to be the definer, they must certainly have the ball. Risky? Extremely. The agents of great undertakings are willing to put themselves in positions of potentially great failure, but they also possess an innate knowledge that they will succeed, for without this certainty, who is the great one? Is this arrogance? No. This is self–knowledge. The great ones know themselves, their capabilities, and they address their own weaknesses with vigor, courage, and fear. Yes – fear. The fear of failure is what drives the great ones. Not the fear of an opponent, but the fear of failings that they could have avoided with more work. And the greater fear: The fear of losing, which to the great ones is simply not acceptable. The great one is inside of you, waiting to be unleashed. Do not be selfish. Understand the importance of all moments. You must take risks. You must look failure and fear in the eyes with equal amounts of ferocity and calm. You must know yourself, must recall where you have been, and must know where it is you wish to go. When you do, you will be the one people turn to, the definer of moments. And you will, most certainly, be the one Wanting The Ball.
