The Pamela Positive: Olympic Trainer and Nike Co-Founder Bill Bowerman Tells Us, It’s Already InsideJuly 20, 2012
“Everything you need is already inside. Just do it.” – Bill Bowerman
I love Bill Bowerman’s quote, as he speaks to the potential and belief in each one of us… We should always strive to be our best and to believe in ourselves, even if we don’t always achieve our immediate goal. The importance is in the process and our motives.
We should treat ourselves and others with the utmost care, meaning, “we believe!” The alternative is costly to our health, to what we can achieve, and to what the world will miss…
What I love is that Bill Bowerman translated this belief across many areas — personal values, sports training and business. Believing isn’t relegated to any sector!
