This nation was built upon the backs of hard working individuals that put their blood and sweat into their work. They were men and women just like you and I that showed respect to those they met, commanded trust with the words they spoke, and had pride in the work they did.
Work starts at 7:00? They would be there at 6:45. Didn't get everything done that needed to be done that day? They stayed until it was finished. When you looked into their eyes you sensed a hard, firm, respectful, and respected individual that got the job done.
They were people that brought their lunch pail to work every day.
Our country was built by these men and women. Wars have always been won by these dedicated individuals. Everyday people that appear to have just everyday abilities who actually posses the greatest attributes needed for success in just about every endeavor in life.
The OTHER qualities.
Kansas City Chiefs head coachTodd Haley tells his players that everyone in the NFL has talent. Everyone in the NFL has speed, or strength, or agility, or a great arm . Everyone in the NFL is one of the best athletes this country has produced. What makes one player different than another in the NFL, Haley would tell us, is the OTHER qualities.
Haley is telling his players that if you want to hang around in the NFL you have to have something more than just talent. You have to have something that sets you apart. Haley suggests that if an individual lives with a strong purpose, then hard work is a necessity.
Todd Haley, Scott Pioli, Charlie Weis, and Romeo Crennel are on the verge of doing what every Chiefs fan has been yearning for these long years. They are on the verge of pulling the Chiefs up out of the abyss. They are doing it by insisting on hard work and finding individuals that have the same qualities as those everyday people that built this country.
Don't be fooled. The Kansas City Chiefs aren't going to win the Super Bowl this year. But what they are going to do is look respectable. Something they haven't even done in the recent past. The Kansas City Chiefs are going to have pride when they step on the field this year. And when the season is over...that pride is still going to be there.
Not because they have more talent, but they do. Not because they have an easier schedule, but they do. The Chiefs have a future now. They have a future because an entire team found out what it took to make it in the NFL. They found out that what sets a man apart in life is the OTHER qualities. The entire team has discovered what the people that built this nation knew all along....
There is no substitute for hard work. Thomas Edison
