LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

"To my young friends out there:

Life can be great, but not when you can't see it.

So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors

that God gave us as a precious gift to His children,

to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count.

Say yes to your life."

Robert H. Schuller



There was something about this quote that didn't

sit right with me but I was busy and moved on. -

But I couldn't forget it, so couldn't get past it. -


The problem with it is the word 'attempt.'

Attempt means 'to try' - and trying means

to 'not do' - 'not doing' is not good enough

for doing something great, or even small.

So I'll change this quote to my own way of thinking:




"If you knew you absolutely could not

fail, what great thing would you do?"

"I've also seen that great men are often lonely.

This is understandable, because they have built

such high standards for themselves that they

often feel alone. But that same loneliness is

part of their ability to create."
