This week we have started to review our SOAR expectations and as we continue to think about what we have done over the last year, think about all the times that you have SOARed. Did you feel good about yourself? Were you happy? Remember that when we do the right thing, we feel good about ourselves, so try to remember all those good things, how they made you feel, and continue to SOAR.

Lou Holtz, former American football player, coach, and analyst, said, "Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
