“If I put a 2 x 4 on the ground and asked you to walk across it. How many of you could do that? You all could do it! Because you would focus on the board. But what if I took that same 2 x 4 and put it 10 stories up, stretched between two buildings? It’s hard to focus on the 2 x 4, because you are focused on your FEAR of FAILING. FOCUS on your goals. Don’t be distracted by your FEARS. Concentrate on the 2 x 4 and we’ll get it done.”  –Nick Saban, University of Alabama
