November 9 ~  Give Extra To Be Successful Time Enough to Win

"I really look at the old saying, 'There is no traffic jam on the extra mile.' In life you've got to give extra to be successful." ~ Roger Staubach

Football

A competitor who always gave a little extra, "America's Quarterback" for America's Dallas Cowboys, Roger Staubach (1942-) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and won the Heisman Trophy as a U.S. Naval Academy junior in 1963.

"Confidence doesn't come out of nowhere," he once said. "It's a result of something... hours and days and weeks and years of constant work and dedication."

The dedicated athlete fulfilled his four-year military commitment before joining the Cowboys in 1969. In ten years, with the guidance of the great coach Tom Landry, Staubach led the team to to four NFC titles and two Super Bowl victories.

"Nothing good comes in life or athletics unless a lot of hard work has preceded the effort. Only temporary success is achieved by taking short cuts," he said. The tenacious quarterback led his team to 23 fourth-quarter comebacks, 14 of them in the last two minutes of the game.

Never one for short cuts, Staubach was a four-time NFL passing leader. When he retired in 1979, he was the highest-rated passer in football league history and was elected into the Pro Hall of Fame in 1985.

"You've got to always have a humility about yourself as an athlete, to know there's more ahead and more you can accomplish," said Staubach.

With hard work and determination, he launched the Staubach Company in 1977 and built it into one of the world's most successful real estate firms. For the fiscal year ending June 2006, he employed about 1,400 employees with sales totaling $26 billion.

In 2006, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. About his philosophy for success, he said, "You're going to have disappointments, you're going to get knocked down. You're going to have to pick yourself back up."

affirmation: live life with every passionate color you can!Give a little more than is expected.
