" Talent is God-given.....be thankful;
Praise is man-given.....be humble;

I heard coach Dungy use this quote when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it's always stayed with me. Be thankful for talents, for they are truly gifts from God.....be humble of praise from others, for they are only words.....and above all, be careful when judging oneself, for only you can truly determine the extent of your success.March 31, 2003
