Vince Lombardi, was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960s. He led his team to three straight and five total National Football League championships in seven years, including winning the first two Super Bowls following the 1966 and 1967 NFL seasons. (See Wikipedia.)
He is considered by some to be the best football coach in the history of football. Lombardi said: “The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”
That is what he taught his players every year and that is how he lived his life. No wonder he is considered the best.
What if we developed that attitude; what if we taught our children that attitude, and they taught theirs-and on down the line? Where would we be today? Would it be somewhere different? Doing something different?
Perhaps the secret to a happy life is not so much someplace or something different but working hard at the job we have, applying our very best.
