"You know football has brought me great happiness. It's given us a life I never imagined. But none of that can compare to the joy, fulfillment, satisfaction or pride and love I feel for being your father. I know this Hall of Fame weekend has been about me and my experiences to get to this moment. However, I now want to shift this moment to you guys. There is no doubt in mind that everything I have achieved, you can achieve more. This is only if you are fearless enough to discover what you truly love to do. In order to do this, you must stay present, stay curious, stay joyful. You do this, chances are you won’t have to find what you love. What you love will surely find you. When it finds you, give it all you've got. "Where else would you rather be if you love what you're doing? Why wouldn’t you want to learn more about what you do if you love it? I promise you, time will slip away when you find what you love to do. But get ready, because in your pursuit of finding what you love to do, you are guaranteed of getting something that no one on this earth is immune to. Beautiful growing pains are coming. Critics are coming. Like every child of a success person, you will be compared. When this comparison comes, don’t listen. Good or bad, do not listen. Comparison is the thief of joy. You will get knocked down. You will fail. And you will doubt yourself. But that is a good thing. That is where the gold is. That is where you will come face to face with who you really are and what you are made of. Be fearless and go there. The fight you have with inner fear is the most worthwhile fight you will ever have. Life takes off on the other side of fear. When hard times come, dig deep, close your eyes and breath slowly. Tell yourself, 'I've got this. I've got what it takes. I am more than enough.' See the greatest version of yourself. Feel it with every cell in your body and let that vision guide you. For that is who you are meant to be. "Success comes in all shapes and sizes, but there is a difference. True success is more than making a lot of money or being recognized as one of the best at what you do. True success is about giving back. It's about kindness. It's about quality of relationships. It's about finding joy in other people’s joy. Trust me, I have learned these things the hard way at times. These principles, combined with doing what you truly love to do, will no doubt make you an all-star in the most important game there is, that is the game of life." - Tony Gonzalez
