"My father always said to me, ‘Remember
whatever game you play, 90% of success is from the shoulders up.’ You
don’t have to be the biggest and the strongest. Having natural ability
can even be a detriment if you take it for granted.
"Your dedication has to be 100%. It won’t
happen if you’re doing it because someone said you ought to. You have
to have that burning desire.
"You must begin with the fundamentals, and take
it step by step. You have to overcome any physical problems you might
have. Everything you do has to contribute to the goal, right down to the
people you associate with."
