Every reader of my blog (including me) has a "hockey coach" in his/her life-someone who has told us what we can't do-someone who has told us that we are not smart enough to succeed in school, we are too old to go back to school, we are not qualified to accept that promotion, we are not capable of starting our own company, etc. ad nauseum. However, each of of us also has someone who, like Lee's brother, encourages us-they cheer us on, they help us study for that exam, they encourage us to go for that promotion, etc., who do we listen to? Are we listening to the right person, just like Lee did all of those years ago?
