Toughness Quotes by Jay Bilas
Failure is a part of competing, and embracing that fact is an important component of toughness. Tough people fail, but tough people are not failures. The only failures are those who give up, or give in. Rationalization is to make an excuse for not achieving more than you have to that point. I did not want to do what was easy; I wanted to do what was hard, and do it consistently.
To get the most from myself and to get the most out of practice, and to give the most to my team, Toughnesd should have put more effort, energy and thought into preparing myself for each practice.
Each practice is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to get better, and an opportunity to make a breakthrough and reach a new level. I may not have been the best, but I can always give my best.
