Reputations

“You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.”

I read that quote in a fortune cookie over a year ago and I have kept it ever since. Reputations are forged on what you have and have not done in the past. If you want to become known for something you must live it and do it before you can become known for it.

Hard work, sacrifice and dedication are required to establish a successful and respected reputation. It cannot and will not happen over night and you must be willing and eager to pay a price to earn a name for yourself.

I’m not sure if there is anything more valuable than a reputation in sports, especially hockey. Reputations get people opportunities and jobs that others don’t even have a chance at. It will help land recruits on the recruiting trail.

Work to build your reputation every day and it will help you get to the places you want to go.
