Bits of Wisdom

“Leadership, like coaching, is fighting for the hearts and souls of men and getting them to believe in you.”

Eddie Robinson

“Being positive doesn’t mean being fake, Pollyanna. We are positive, not because life is easy. We are positive because life can be hard. It’s not about ignoring your current reality. It’s about facing it while believing the best is yet to come.”

Jon Gordon, Author

“I don’t necessarily have to like my players and associates but as their leader I must love them. Love is loyalty, love is teamwork, love respects the dignity of the individual. This is the strength of any organization.”

Vince Lombardi

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
