Leadership….Learning from Others 1

“You don’t determine a man’s greatness by his talent or wealth as the world does but rather by what it takes to discourage him”  Jerry Falwell

I remember arriving at Liberty University in the fall of 1987.  Honestly, there had been very few discouraging things in my life….I had a great family, school had always gone well and athletics had come pretty easy!  Little did I realize that over the next four years, I would face a ton of discouraging moments.  Times you wanted to quit and hang it up but this quote that Dr. Falwell would share often would always remind me to keep fighting & keep going!

Discouragement is part of life…..the greatness that can be had only comes through sticking in the fight!
