Explore the value of Dedication
The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.
Cecil B. DeMille
In order to excel, you must be completely dedicated to your chosen sport. You must also be prepared to work hard and be willing to accept destructive criticism. Without 100% dedication, you won't be able to do this.
LIVE YOUR DREAMS
We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
Dedication involves making the space to let young ideas take hold; every tree was once a seed and every company was once an idea.
Most of us serve our ideals by fits and starts. The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.

My aunt is my hero. She quit her job to work ad honorem with the nuns of Mother Theresa. She's a doctor and every day she treats the old ladies and kids that live there; which are really poor people who can not afford a doctor or medicines.

My parents married in the late 50's when it was still very taboo for a couple of different races to marry. Plus they got together while still in high school ('cause of me!).
