"Don't ever say, 'Hey, I made it.' Because the day you say that, is the day stuff starts to fall apart. You have to have that mind set, that every level I get to, I'm never going to be satisfied. If you're a Freshman in high school, and you get picked to be on the varsity team, don't be satisfied with that. Try to start. Once you become a starter, don't be satisfied with being a starter, try to be a good enough football player to earn a scholarship. Then don't be satisfied, just because you got a scholarship, go try to make an impact your Freshman year, if you can. If you can't, then you wait your turn. But when your turn does come, make an impact and never be satisfied.
"With all the successful people in the world, no matter what it is, if you ask them how they got to the top, they'll tell you they never got satisfied with what they had. Those people in the world, they think like that. To be a successful athlete, you have to think like that. You can never rest, because you always know there's always somebody younger than you preparing and doing the same thing you're doing."
