“My mother was a gentle woman who loved, and was loved by, all those around her. Above all, she showered everyone in our family with unconditional love. In spite of her soft, caring nature, she managed to prepare her growing kids for the world they were about to venture into. We often were reminded that:
Ÿ The best things in life are worth working for.
Ÿ You can do anything you set your mind to. Remember, though, it’s better if someone will pay you to do it.
Ÿ To get things done, you’ve got to work with people. Some of those people require a whole lot more work than others.
Ÿ If you commit to something, give it all you’ve got. Giving anything less than your all is letting everyone down, especially yourself.
Ÿ In a race, there’s one winner and a bunch of also-rans. You don’t want to be an also-ran.
