Brittany’s favourite quote, which encapsulates the essence of life, is from American Footballer Vince Lombardi:
“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavour. It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up. The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.”
