You wanna win,lemme tell you--How?

Winners never quit, but quitters never win!

There was a young woman who had taken ballet lessons all through her childhood, & now she felt that she was ready to commit herself to the study & discipline necessary to make a career of it. She wanted to be a prima ballerina, but first she wanted to be sure that she had a special talent. So when the ballet company came to town she went backstage after the performance & spoke to the ballet master."I want to be a great ballerina," she said, "but I don't know if I have the talent."
"Dance for me," the master said, & after only a minute or so he shook his head. "No, no," he said. "You don't have what it takes."The young woman went home, heartbroken. She tossed her ballet slippers in the closet & never wore them again. Instead, she got married & had babies, & when the kids were old enough she took a part-time job running a cash register at the convenience store.Years later she attended the ballet, & on the way out she ran into the old master, now in his eighties. She reminded him that they had spoken before. She showed him photos of her kids & told him about the job at the convenience store, & then she said, "There's just one thing that's always bothered me. How could you tell so quickly that I didn't have what it takes?""Oh, I barely looked at you when you danced," he said. "That's what I tell all of them who come to me.""But that's unforgivable, " she cried. "You ruined my life. Maybe I could have been a great prima ballerina.""No, I don't think so," said the old master. "If you had had what it takes you wouldn't have paid any attention to what I said."
