You always finish what you start. You never do something halfway, and you never quit until you've finished. Dad later told me he thought the steer riding competition would teach me a valuable lesson about not backing out of something after I had made a commitment, even though we both knew that would have been the easier path.
This is what I remember my parents saying: You're not going to coast through school and not make your best effort. You are going to work hard and do your best and be a leader. It's going to be difficult as well as challenging, but if you put the work in, you will succeed. You are going to play sports and work hard as well. You are going to prepare. Great leaders are always prepared for the path ahead of them.
