Words of Wisdom from the late Jimmy Valvano:

“It's so important to know where you are. I know where I am right now. How do you go from where you are to where you want to be? I think you have to have an enthusiasm for life. You have to have a dream, a goal. You have to be willing to work for it.”  - Jimmy Valvano
