We love this because we live by this at Truly Social: Never let down your guard and never think you are good enough.

They don’t engage anyone. Always think about how you can do better. Now carry on and keep kicking ass!

Did You Miss This? 'Dart Guy' The Man, The Meme, The Leafs' Newest Mascot
In the midst of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ first playoff win in four years on Saturday night, an unlikely hero was born.
A Leafs superfan, who had travelled from Ontario to Washington for Game 2, was shown on the broadcast sporting face paint, a dyed beard and an unlit cigarette hanging precariously from his mouth. The man, later identified as Jason Maskalow but also now fondly referred to as “Dartman” or “Dart Guy”, quickly became a symbol of good luck for Leafs fans after the team pulled off a 4-3 double-overtime win. Talk about a true blue Canadian Meme! CBC Sports
