Inspire others slowly and steadily....


March Madness ended last night: the men’s and women’s champions have been crowned and the season is complete. For all the men and women who started the college basketball season months ago, there was probably a bolt of inspiration and enthusiasm in the beginning, but the drive to be the best most likely came on slowly and steadily, and built quietly throughout the year.  Then, as teams started winning and separating themselves from others, the excitement began to grow, the intensity grew stronger, and the possibilities took shape. Not many of us know the thrill of winning or agony of defeat like the players, but we have a chance to live those emotions with the teams we support. It’s like that in companies too: excitement and loyalty start slowly and grow over time. Passions like those come into us slowly and quietly, and all the time. That’s how the heart of a champion develops. Let your inspiration grow quietly and steadily today
