|I think I'm partially driven by people. Everyone has good in them...whether they like to admit it or not.|
|I'm social and driven by relationships I have in my life. Family and friends come first, always.|
|I thrive when I work with others. I believe myself to be a true team player, allowing myself to lean on people as much as they lean on me.|
|How about you?|
Alex Smith, 49ers

Looking back on it, on how I got to where I am, I don’t know how it feels if I were running towards from something or running away from it. But that didn’t matter. What I did know is when you run into something, something bigger, something meaner, something with the power to knock you down; you have to trust in yourself, trust that you can get back up and not give in. Ever. Because power isn’t just about going forward, its about not letting anything hold you back. If you find that in yourself, you can go anywhere you want.
"But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why fly the Atlantic? We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy but because they are hard. Because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills. Because that challenge is one we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win."
