Nate's Monday Morning Message 

“Every time a football player goes to ply his trade he’s got to play from the ground up – from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That is okay. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.” Vince Lombardi

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…what a great game the Cardinals had yesterday! Their commitment and drive for the win is an inspiration to me and so many others. It doesn’t just take skill and training to win an NFL game…you have got to have heart and an undying passion for the game. This week I would like to challenge each of you to level up your passion, your drive, you commitment to your goals. What can you do this week to step it up and overcome an obstacle standing in your way? Each day we have a choice…and every day is game day. Let’s make it a winning week!


Everyone Has a Story in Life

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted, “Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed, “Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”

The old man smiled and said, “I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.
