Believe In You

Vince Lombardi said it best:  "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge but rather in a lack of will."  ~~ 

My husband would be the first person to tell you I'm not much of a sports fan so it's rather strange for me to be quoting a sports legend like Vince Lombardi but I recently watched a very short movie at Simple Things about a speech by Coach Lombardi titled: 'What it takes to be number 1'

The movie features quotes and excerpts from that speech about how a person's "will" not their strength or their knowledge, but their sheer will is what fuels that deep down desire to give their all to what they're doing - to be the best you can be - to not quit when the going gets tough.  He never accepted less than any player's best effort on or off the field. 

Vince Lombardi was one of the greatest football coaches in history who brilliantly brought out the best in his players, who in turn loved and respected him as he led the Green Bay Packers to win a lot of games and championships. 

Coach Lombardi knew that anyone can gain the knowledge they need; they can build the strength they need but when it comes down to the last minutes of the game it will always be a person's "will", their belief in themselves, that causes them to reach deep within and give it their all.  

My friends, everything we do in life requires education, knowledge or strength to be good but it's when you reach deep inside and latch on to your will to succeed that you too can become the best you can be.   So go for it!  Be the winner you were meant to be.  Believe In You.

Live Everyday and Laugh Often.
