Your Daily Dose of Greatness

"Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability."

First. Wow! I wouldn’t want to have walked in Bill O’Brien’s shoes last Saturday—even for a minute. As if coaching a high stakes NFL playoff game weren’t harrowing enough, he had to go up against his former boss—a man he spent years imitating and adulating, whose wildly successful career he can only hope to one day emulate. O’Brien must have been racking his brains, wondering—“What did I do to deserve this? I finally arrive on football’s biggest stage—in the most critical game of my coaching career—and I have to outwit the very man who has been my greatest source of inspiration. And who—it just so happens, is the most decorated coach in the NFL today. And among the best ever!”
