“The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.”
– Tommy Lasorda (famous baseball coach)

Recently, my wife and I attended the Kentucky Derby (see our picture, don’t we look great 😊).  Rich Strike, a longshot, won the race.  Most thought this horse had no chance (myself included).  However, if you watched the race, you saw the determination of this horse to win.  His run to the roses was epic.  Determination in business likewise may make the “impossible” possible.  How many times have we put our minds to something in earnest to attain that impossible goal – and then made it happen.  Our mind is our most powerful resource.  In our businesses, too many times we put limits on our success.  I know I do this sometimes.  Rich Strike’s determination to win is truly inspirational and we need to remember to maximize our opportunities with utmost determination.  I’m looking forward to Rich Strike’s run at the Belmont Stakes!  Can he do it again!
