From Jay Bilas – “Toughness”

“I know that I am capable of true toughness. I believe we are all

capable of exhibiting the kind of toughness valued and

emphasized in this book.

I also accept that I am not as tough as I want to be, and that I

have to continue to strive, every day, to be tougher — for

myself, my team, and my family. Toughness isn’t about

bravado. It is about meeting challenges head-on and not

shrinking from them.

And when I get knocked down, I strive to be tough enough to

get up and keep fighting. Based upon the principles in this

book, those that I have learned from so many great people in

my life, I know that I am tougher than I used to be, and I can

and will be tougher tomorrow than I am today.

We can all be tougher, and we can be tougher together.”
