Winners Are People Like You
Winners take chances.
Like everyone else they fear failing,
but they refuse to let fear control them.
Winners don't give up.
When life gets rough they hang in
until the going gets better.
Winners are flexible.
They realize there is more than one way
and are willing to try others.
Winners know they are not perfect.
They respect their weakness's
while making the most of their strengths.
Winners fall but they don't stay down.
They stubbornly refuse to let a fall
keep them from climbing.
Winners don't blame fate for their failures
nor luck for their successes.
Winners accept responsibility for their lives.
Winners are positive thinkers who see good in all things.
From the ordinary they make the extraordinary.
Winners believe in the path they have chosen.
Even when it's hard,
even when others can't see where they are going.
Winners are patient.
They know a goal is only as worthy
as the effort that's required to achieve it.
Winners are people like you.
They make this world a better place to be.....

Dedicated To Rugby Great
who carried this poem with him all over the world
and read it before every game.
When David was being inducted
into the Living Legends Hall Of Fame
he wanted me to be present
as this poem meant so much to him.
Through his great kindness
he made it possible for me to attend the ceremony
in Sydney, Australia
which was the trip of a lifetime,
for which I will eternally be grateful to David
for this tremendous honor and opportunity...
