  1. Appreciating the journey when things don’t go as planned can reap great rewards.
  2. Being meticulous is a path to success, even if it isn’t always viewed as a positive trait. Are you meticulous enough? 


  1. Finding your “deep down” or another gear to engage when you want to win or do well is important. What is my deep down?
  2. Finding your “why” is valuable to success and it is important to realize your drive can change throughout your life.
