More "Win Some, Lose Some"

Monday, October 21, 2013

My beloved Texas Aggies lost this weekend... and they won this weekend.

They lost in football in a stunning upset to Auburn.

And they won in soccer games (the OTHER futbol) against both Alabama and Georgia.

See what you think about these quotes:

"A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals." Larry Bird

"It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference." Paul William "Bear" Bryant

"Some people, in working towards a goal, find themselves seized by inertia when it comes time for action. If this should happen to you, despite the small graduated steps, then it is time to re-examine your goal. Consider how important it actually is and then either discard the goal and replace it with more suitable one or continue the steps with a renewed sense of the value of achieving it. " Fitzhugh Dodson

"Winners have simply formed the habit of doing things losers don't like to do. " Albert Gray

    Being prepared to win is definitely a good thing! It is a great state of mind to stay positive and dedicated no matter what the outcome is!!

    I love my Aggie football team but I've seen them lose so many times I don't get too upset. I'm more interested in the quality of the academics and research our wonderful school is involved in.
    Gig'em Aggies!!!
