Key To Success


One important key to success is self-confidence.  
An important key to self-confidence is preparation.

Arthur Ashe grew up in segregated Richmond, Virginia.  He spent countless hours reading for pleasure and listening to music with his mother.  As a youth, he was so skinny that people didn't think he'd ever grow up to become the famous athlete that he is today.  He earned a tennis scholarship to UCLA and from there, he earned national recognition for his abilities in tennis.  His legacy is not just in playing tennis so well but also for creating a positive influence in the field as well as in the causes that he championed.


Dr. Maya Angelou wrote a wonderful book about him called Arthur Ashe - Citizen of the World.  You can also learn more about Arthur Ashe, the humanitarian, online at Arthur Ashe.org.
