On this topic, I intend to teach my kids the three things my father told me over and over and over as a kid:
1. A job worth doing is a job worth doing well.
2. Winners concentrate on winning. Losers concentrate on getting by.
3. You can do anything you set your mind to.
If they want to use that to become #1 in the world at tennis or #347 at being a middle manager in a warehouse in Nevada, that's great. Life isn't about being #1 in the world or being a celebrity or marrying another celebrity. It's being secure in who you are and the choices you've made.
