Watching this commercial right now as I type on my home TV. I enjoyed it immensely. I wish I had learned this lesson more while in HS sports.

Pain is temporary, pride is forever. Don't sit and complain about losing that game, be proud that you were able to compete and respect the other competitors.
John, Canada

Life is too short to care about winning or losing. It doesnt matter, life is too valuable to waste so just live your life to the fullest, live like you were dying.

I've seen many of the value commercials and I love them all. These may be the only character building some of our children ever get to see. Thank you Foundation for a Better Life.
B Smith, Muncie, IN

Randy N, Blaine MN.

I just saw a commercial. It had to be one of the BEST EVER!!! I know it had a GREAT message!!
Robbie F., SC

Hi - I was very encouraged to see the billboard along 7th avenue in NYC referencing sportsmanship! Although I am a Physical Therapist, I had to stop working at this profession due to a chronic back injury. I started a business that spotlights sportsmanship. Although it is a passion of mine, it is slow in gaining recognition. Thanks!
