“ABILITY is what you’re capable of doing. MOTIVATION determines what you do. ATTITUDE determines how well you do it.” ~ Lou Holtz
Ability is not the end of the story. We all know of highly talented people who have got nowhere in the competitive world we live in. It takes real character to get to the top and stay there.
“I really believe that everyone has a talent, ability or skill that he can mine to support himself and to succeed in life.” ~ Dean Koontz
