“Gold medals aren’t really made of gold. They’re made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.”

– Dan Gable

This quote is a lively reminder that, while success is commonly achieved by those with the time, resources and opportunity to pursue it, truly great achievement requires a “secret sauce” made from three hard-to-find “ingredients”: sweat, stick-to-it-ivenes, and guts. Guts . . . what’s that? Nothing less than a magical mixture of passion, fearlessness, spunk, backbone, fortitude and nearly blind faith in yourself. Those who know how to “cook the stew” of greatness, in whatever field they may work, are the ones who get the real “gold medals” in life. If you share this “secret” with the young ones in your life, it is sure to be a gift that will keep on giving them forever. Go, you Olympians of 2032 and beyond, . . . go for greatness and the truly “gold medals” in life will be yours!
