Football, that's just athletics. But in the business world - doing everything - people are competing. So you need good work ethics, and I think it helped me to develop good work ethics, being in a small town.
The majority of the people that I was growing up with were going off into the military. A lot of my classmates thought of going into the military.
When I feel good about myself, things start happening for myself. When you look up, you go up.
