These lessons were first shared with me by my friend Lance Fry, when we were both teaching and coaching together in Virginia. Since that time, I have taught the first four to everyone that I can possibly can. I believe that when applied they can be life changing. I have added the fifth one because I think it is somehow being missed today.
Lesson 1: Life is not fair, get over it.
Lesson 2: Life is tough, be tougher.
Lesson 3: Life changes, adjust.
Lesson 4: Life is short, make it count.
Lesson 5: Life is hard, expect that and overcome.
