It's the eve of the greatest football game of the year and, while not a die-hard football fan myself, I stumbled upon some quotes from the legendary Vince Lombardi that I had to share.  What a guy.

“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.’” 

“If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.”

“The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.”

“Leadership is based on a spiritual quality --- the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.”

“After all the cheers have died down and the stadium is empty, after the headlines have been written, and after you are back in the quiet of your room and the championship ring has been placed on the dresser and after all the pomp and fanfare have faded, the enduring thing that is left is the dedication to doing with our lives the very best we can to make the world a better place in which to live.”

I could go on and on quoting this guy...  

Happy Super Bowl weekend!
