7 Motivational Quotes From The Legend Vince Lombardi

Vince Lombardi could be considered the godfather of all coaches. His focus, determination and ability to inspire was second to none.

The quotes that Lombardi provided over the years are as legendary as the man himself.

Though his profession was as a football coach, his leadership, and these 7 quotes provided by him, were ultimately more than just about a game, they were about life. These quotes inspire me and I hope that they inspire you too.

Here are my 7 favorite motivational quotes by Vince Lombardi:

 

Quote #1:

“The spirit, the will to win, and the will to endure are the things that endure. These qualities are so much more important than the events that occur.”

This quote to me reaches far beyond football and is a great description of the individuals both near to us and afar that create influence and motivation in our lives. The best of mankind can be summed up in this quote and speaks all the way from world leaders to those less fortunate.

Where there is a strong will, and great determination, we become capable of continuing to move forward. Life is about progress and not perfection.

Quote #2:

“Coaches who can outline plays on a blackboard are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.”

I’ve played a wide variety of sports my whole life and definitely found this to be true. This insight from Lombardi reaches beyond the playing field as the best leaders I have ever worked for, or have had as mentors, have found a way to dig deeper into your true essence. This is where real motivation happens which cannot be replicated on a drawing board or a memo.

 

Quote #3:

“To achieve success, whatever the job we have, we must pay the price.”

I look at this in my life the same as the idea that anything that is given to us must be earned. Nothing comes for free and success will never just be handed to us. The idea of achieving anything whether it be in a career, relationships or personal goals will not come without heartache and strife. The challenges that are presented on the road to success is what makes it that much sweeter.

 

Quote #4:

“Success is based upon a spiritual quality, a power to inspire others.”

The best man I’ve ever worked for could inspire us in more ways than I even think we realized. When the spirit is strong and and the ability to inspire comes naturally, true leadership is able to shine.

You however might be the one who has the ability to inspire others and this gift should not be taken lightly. To me there is no greater person than the man or woman that can bring the best out of others.

 

Quote #5:

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”

Believe it or not one of the most passionate people I had ever met was a man who sold potatoes at a large farmers market in London, England. In his mind he could have been selling Rolls Royces as his devotion and passion to something so simple translated into an enthusiasm that many found addicting.

He was so dedicated and committed to his chosen field that you couldn’t help but envy the passion he had for his work and ultimately his own life. Again, even though it was potatoes, you knew this man woke up each day knowing he was living his passion and serving his purpose.

 

Quote #6:

“Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit.”

This quote has really applied to me as I’ve noticed how true, and dangerous, it really is. Quitting is like a cheap drug that provides some relief but hurts you in the long run. The problem with quitting is that it has a domino effect that leads to a long running pattern.

When feelings of quitting rear their ugly head it becomes the time when you really need to put your head down and push through. If you can make this reaction to it a new habit, the urge to quit WILL pass.

 

Quote #7:

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up.”

To me this is the ultimate Vince Lombardi quote, so simple yet so profound. Even though this has a direct connection to football, or any other sport, it is so much more about life. To pretend you are not going to get taken down a peg or two over the course of your life is to be pretty blind to reality.

We know we are going to get knocked down, that’s not the issue, the issue is our response to this adversity. In the response you find true perseverance and, at its core, your true character.

    I really like all of these quotes, but the one that sticks the most to me is quote #5. I also believe that the quality of someone’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to reaching their personal excellence, that’s why lazy people never seem to be happy. Reaching certain type of happiness and quality of life takes hard work and a certain amount of commitment. This was great inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

29 Epic Tom Hardy Quotes

Tom Hardy Quotes
Image Credit | The Sun UK

Tom Hardy is an incredible actor. From appearing in Hollywood blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises; Hardy understands the value of endurance & sticking to your passion. Many people doubted him as he became an actor and his dreams of finding success. Now he has won multiple Oscars and is a respected member of the community.

Here are 29 of Tom Hardy’s greatest quotes:

1. “The only thing I can do is wipe my arse, brush my teeth, turn up, and do the best work I can.” – Tom Hardy

2. “It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.“ – Tom Hardy

3. “Love is doing something you don’t want to do for someone you don’t particularly like at that moment.“ – Tom Hardy

4. “I think it’s important that you always transform if you can. That’s what I was trained to do. You try and hide yourself as much as you can – that’s the key to longevity.“ – Tom Hardy

5. “I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.” – Tom Hardy

6. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it.” – Tom Hardy

7. “Fame and stuff like that is all very cool, but at the end of the day, we’re all human beings. Although what I do is incredibly surreal and fun and amazing and I’m really grateful for it, I don’t believe my own press release, do you know what I mean?“ – Tom Hardy

8. “Never give power to the big man.” – Tom Hardy

9. “A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me – I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no f**king indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably f**k it up.” – Tom Hardy

10. “I’m just getting settled as a responsible man – but if you split the elephant into little mouthfuls it will be fine.” – Tom Hardy

11. “I hate publicists and publicity. But I love people.” – Tom Hardy

12. “I’m not interested in walks in the parks. Anything difficult that people think I couldn’t play, I’m straight at it. If they say ‘Tom, don’t put your hand in the fire’, you know I’ll be coming out of it casually an hour later with third-degree burns and bandages up to my arms.” – Tom Hardy

13. “So, somewhere between that acceptance and doing my homework and being competitive and having ambition and loving my job and observing and reflecting my society, that’s where I find the purpose. Because a man needs purpose.” – Tom Hardy

14. “I guess is I had fifty million dollars I could spend more time at home…” – Tom Hardy

15. “There’s always a certain pride in getting the job done properly.“ – Tom Hardy

16. “You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Tom Hardy

17. “Responsibility has a cost, and there’s no such thing as perfection.” – Tom Hardy

18. “We’re all flawed human beings and we all have a cauldron of psychosis which we have to unravel as we grow older and find the way we fit in to live our lives as best as possible.“ – Tom Hardy

19. “No matter how much you can prepare for it, there’s nothing worse than the anticipation. It’s always the killer of everything. The actuality of doing something is normally a lot easier than the waiting for it.” – Tom Hardy

20. “Vanity is normal in performers. Does it bother other people? All the time. But nine times out of ten, that says more about them than you.” – Tom Hardy

21. “You don’t step on stage to eat; you go there to be eaten.” – Tom Hardy

22. “It is not the violence that sets a man apart, it is the distance heis prepared to go.” – Tom Hardy

23. “Spirituality seems to me to be for those who’ve been through hell.” – Tom Hardy

24. “I’m going to fail to hit the mark I’ve put up before me because it’s not possible to hit it. I want to be the best at what I do so I’ve got to get over myself already because that’s never going to happen. I ain’t ever going to be god.” – Tom Hardy

25. “But I do believe the time is now.” – Tom Hardy

26. “I’m here to challenge myself and to see whether I can shapeshift in an environment that’s actually quite daunting, but which I think would be nice to shine a light into.. The destination of any interesting drama is that you shine a light into a place that not many people know about.” – Tom Hardy

27. “Within the creative arts you can create things and destroy things. Passion creates and destroys.” – Tom Hardy

28. “I’m not really a road dog. I’m a bit of a homeboy. But the reality is, I love what I fucking do.” – Tom Hardy

29. “We are survivors. We control the fear. And without the fear, we are all as good as dead.” – Tom Hardy

    I really like all of these quotes, but the one that sticks the most to me is quote #5. I also believe that the quality of someone’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to reaching their personal excellence, that’s why lazy people never seem to be happy. Reaching certain type of happiness and quality of life takes hard work and a certain amount of commitment. This was great inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

29 Epic Tom Hardy Quotes

Tom Hardy Quotes

Tom Hardy is an incredible actor. From appearing in Hollywood blockbusters such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Inception, and The Dark Knight Rises; Hardy understands the value of endurance & sticking to your passion. Many people doubted him as he became an actor and his dreams of finding success. Now he has won multiple Oscars and is a respected member of the community.

Here are 29 of Tom Hardy’s greatest quotes:

1. “The only thing I can do is wipe my arse, brush my teeth, turn up, and do the best work I can.” – Tom Hardy

2. “It doesn’t matter who you are. What matters is your plan.“ – Tom Hardy

3. “Love is doing something you don’t want to do for someone you don’t particularly like at that moment.“ – Tom Hardy

4. “I think it’s important that you always transform if you can. That’s what I was trained to do. You try and hide yourself as much as you can – that’s the key to longevity.“ – Tom Hardy

5. “I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.” – Tom Hardy

6. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it.” – Tom Hardy

7. “Fame and stuff like that is all very cool, but at the end of the day, we’re all human beings. Although what I do is incredibly surreal and fun and amazing and I’m really grateful for it, I don’t believe my own press release, do you know what I mean?“ – Tom Hardy

8. “Never give power to the big man.” – Tom Hardy

9. “A great man is largely forgotten by the public. He doesn’t stand on top of a mountain waving a flag saying, “Look at me – I’m a great man.” A great man often disappears into the ether. Hardly anyone notices that he was even there, apart from his family and close friends. He was reliable. He showed up. He was there. He was useful where he could be. He made mistakes. Tried to make better of those mistakes. Doesn’t mean you have to cure cancer or understand the theory of relativity. It’s not necessarily as rock-and-roll or as cool as you might think. Part of being a great man is accepting that. To dare to be average and normal is actually a pathway to becoming a great man. To have more humility. To accept responsibility more. To just get on with what’s in front of your face. And to leave no f**king indelible mark of your ever being here, apart from the fact that you were there for your family to the best of your ability. It’s not an easy task. I’ll probably f**k it up.” – Tom Hardy

10. “I’m just getting settled as a responsible man – but if you split the elephant into little mouthfuls it will be fine.” – Tom Hardy

11. “I hate publicists and publicity. But I love people.” – Tom Hardy

12. “I’m not interested in walks in the parks. Anything difficult that people think I couldn’t play, I’m straight at it. If they say ‘Tom, don’t put your hand in the fire’, you know I’ll be coming out of it casually an hour later with third-degree burns and bandages up to my arms.” – Tom Hardy

13. “So, somewhere between that acceptance and doing my homework and being competitive and having ambition and loving my job and observing and reflecting my society, that’s where I find the purpose. Because a man needs purpose.” – Tom Hardy

14. “I guess is I had fifty million dollars I could spend more time at home…” – Tom Hardy

15. “There’s always a certain pride in getting the job done properly.“ – Tom Hardy

16. “You musn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.” – Tom Hardy

17. “Responsibility has a cost, and there’s no such thing as perfection.” – Tom Hardy

18. “We’re all flawed human beings and we all have a cauldron of psychosis which we have to unravel as we grow older and find the way we fit in to live our lives as best as possible.“ – Tom Hardy

19. “No matter how much you can prepare for it, there’s nothing worse than the anticipation. It’s always the killer of everything. The actuality of doing something is normally a lot easier than the waiting for it.” – Tom Hardy

20. “Vanity is normal in performers. Does it bother other people? All the time. But nine times out of ten, that says more about them than you.” – Tom Hardy

21. “You don’t step on stage to eat; you go there to be eaten.” – Tom Hardy

22. “It is not the violence that sets a man apart, it is the distance heis prepared to go.” – Tom Hardy

23. “Spirituality seems to me to be for those who’ve been through hell.” – Tom Hardy

24. “I’m going to fail to hit the mark I’ve put up before me because it’s not possible to hit it. I want to be the best at what I do so I’ve got to get over myself already because that’s never going to happen. I ain’t ever going to be god.” – Tom Hardy

25. “But I do believe the time is now.” – Tom Hardy

26. “I’m here to challenge myself and to see whether I can shapeshift in an environment that’s actually quite daunting, but which I think would be nice to shine a light into.. The destination of any interesting drama is that you shine a light into a place that not many people know about.” – Tom Hardy

27. “Within the creative arts you can create things and destroy things. Passion creates and destroys.” – Tom Hardy

28. “I’m not really a road dog. I’m a bit of a homeboy. But the reality is, I love what I fucking do.” – Tom Hardy
