Respect / Success (x4)


Respect falls fallow to demand

Success to Respect

Success and Respect
yearn for each other
earn for each other


Simply being deserves respect

What Every Little League Parent Should Know

Failure is the strongest catalyst
for success. Respect both.

    I bet you pick yourself up dust yourself off and become successful again. We never want to feel failure again. It is a great motivator. Good luck. Hugs.

    I love this Augustus . Today the works posted have required one to open the mind and dig deep . This one is of the same kind . There is much to contemplate upon these words . All are great but I'm drawn to failure . I was considered to be in the top 1% of bass fishing tournament fishermen . I won money in 80% of the tournaments I fished . When I was asked how I got so good I told them I failed 99% of the time but I always came back the next day ready to start all over .

      Like the Babe Ruth story. He stuck out a lot.

        He ate a lot of hot dogs and drank a lot of beer and never got fat ! What ? He did ?
