Growth requires training, time, energy, sacrifice, discipline, commitment, focus, courage, toughness, rewards, punishment, setbacks, disappointment, and TRUST. • The TEAM fails to reach its potential when it fails to pay the price. Sacrifice, time, personal development, and unselfishness are part of the price we pay for team success. • John C Maxwell
