Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% Perspiration

"Genius is one percent inspiration and ninty-nine percent perspiration." ~Thomas Edison

Always keep in mind...Desire only gets you so far. Edison quotes are some of my favorite. The Keyword here is Perspiration.

"Winning is a habit. You've got to play with your heart, with every ouch of fiber in your body." ~Vince Lombardi 

Vince's speech is quite possibly one of my favorite speeches ever. His words ran through my mind last week, as I lay on the gym floor exhausted, sweaty, and ready to mutter some choice words under my breath about my instructor. After months of being drenched in sweat 4 or 5 days a week at the gym, I realized I had actually accomplished my goal through MY hard work and PERSPIRATION. A favorite quote of his ran through my ears at that same moment...

"I firmly believe that any man's finest hours, his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out for a good cause and LIES EXHAUSTED ON THE FIELD OF BATTLE, VICTORIOUS." ~Vince Lombardi 

It was liberating to feel what he was talking about. With enough drive and determination, anything is possible, but you must DO in order to BE THE DREAM. In doing, you MUST perspire if you want to WIN. I dare you to perspire. Watch the video that changed my life.
