Hard work WILL pay off!

If you have ever asked a doctor, an olympian, or a champion of anything, there is one thing they will tell you: hard work will beat out talent any time!

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.

You might be smart, but unless you work hard, you may never achieve your potential.

"It's hard to beat a person who never gives up," Babe Ruth once said.
