Greatest Challenge


Deep in the distance victory is calling your name, and a question rises in your soul. Silently you ask yourself “am I willing to do what is necessary to bridge the gap between where I am at and the greatness I want for my town, school, team, and myself as an individual?” To become the yes you want to be it is a simple blueprint. It requires daily progress to your ultimate self. Enjoy the work required and understand it is an absolute privilege to be free to stand tall against insurmountable odds. Each day you will climb a little higher and a long time from now you will look down the mountain and notice the trail you have blazed beneath you is filled with those who you have inspired to answer “yes” to the same question you asked yourself many years ago. Be the yes.
