Cartoon to illustrate some of Vince Lombardi’s inspirational quotes!
Here’s some of my favorite VL quotes about Winning, Winners…
***Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
Win Win Win!
***We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.
***Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.
***People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
***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.

The First Ever Motivational Poster!?
One of my favourite quotes is from Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the USA:
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race!”
- Persistence – perseverence – that’s what it’s all about!
It’s just dawned on me this morning that I’m being totally negative! I’ve had sore knees for some months now – I don’t know if this is just wear and tear after all these years of playing football/soccer and squash.(I’m 55 in July and I’m trying to keep active as long as possible!)
I’ve only just realized that when I play a game I’m moaning about my injuries and telling friends I’m ‘on my way out’ ‘hanging my boots up’ etc. What am I doing? I’m being so negative! Last year I said I was taking up golf so as not to put any more strain on my knees and forget the footy and squash. And although I really got into the game I have drifted back to my favourite sports. But the reason for recent bad games/results is down to my negative thinking. I’m slipping down the squash leagues, players you I had previously thrashed are now beating me. I’m feeling really sorry for myself and looking for attention. Well, from today I’m stopping this decline! I’ll keep you informed.
In the meantime here’s a cartoon I drew some time ago that helps illustrate the above….
Believe You Can and you can!
I read this from Joe Vitale’s ezine this morning and it stopped me dead in my tracks and force me to pull myself together…
If you want to attract money, for example, see
yourself already wealthy, feel the joy of helping
yourself and others with the money, and repeat
this in your mind as much as its fun to do so.
By doing this you will “brand” your mind with the
new you. Once it takes hold (which can be very
fast), and you act on your ideas, you will begin
to attract money.
The lesson here is this: to change yourself you
need to use imagery, emotion, and repetition. Do
all three and virtually anything is possible.
Have you been watching Britain’s Got Talent?
Susan Boyle, has captured the world’s attention.
In case you’ve missed it, she’s a 47-year-old unemployed charity
worker who lives with her cat in a small village in Scotland.
Susan Boyle is a phenomenal role model for all of us, not just
because of her talent or her courage or her perseverance or her
supportive friends. She is a phenomenal role model for us
because she is us, in all our awkward ordinariness and amazing
Some say she’s an overnight success – but she has been practicing her singing since she was 12 years old – so it’s actually overnight is 35 years!
Her YouTube video has received 50,000,000 hits – I’m thinking
of asking her to appear on my web site!!
Susan Boyle had a dream – so can you!
If you can dream it you can achieve it!
