The Boss was one of my idols. Many disagree with me because of his winning-only motto and demanding ways.
Find me someone who does not want to win? I know I sure do.
Winning is demanding, in any aspect of life because if it was easy it would not define people as much as it does.
Not only was he the Boss of the Yankees, but he was beyond generous to the less fortunate. The Boss would beat you to the punch by asking, “What do you need?” Just fly down to Tampa, FL and ask anyone what he has done for the city.
Being able to make fun of yourself is what defines an extraordinary man, this makes a man authentic and enables people to relate. This was signature of the Boss.
