Winners never quit and quitters never win. Vince Lombardi

Vince Lombardi was a famous Green Bay Packer’s coach. What may not be well known is his faith.

“I believe in God.”
“I derived my strength from daily mass and communion.”

“There are three things that are important to every man in this locker room. His God, his family, and the Green Bay Packers. In that order.”

“I’ve never known a man worth his salt who, in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline. “
“There is something good in men that really yearn for discipline.”
“Mental toughness is many things and rather difficult to explain. Its qualities are sacrifice and self-denial. Also, most importantly, it is combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind – you could call it character in action.”

 

In a world of snowflakes and wokeness, a reawakening of the kind of attitude and discipline he led with is sorely needed today.

It is worth reading more of what he lived.  http://www.vincelombardi.com/quotes.html
