Inspired by Vince Lombardi

in #steemit3 years ago



As NFL football season approaches its climax, a quote from Vince Lombardi seems appropriate. Lombardi is best known as coach of the Green Bay Packers when they won the first two Super Bowls. Lesser known about Lombardi is that he played football for Fordham. At only 5'8" and 180 pounds, Lombardi played tackle and guard. Although undersized, he was an aggressive player. He even returned to a game for a goal line stand after having several of his teeth knocked out earlier in that game. Lombardi has often been quoted. Today's inspiration from Lombardi:

Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

Thank you for the Lombardi quote. I am a big fan of the man, and his accomplishments. He was a force of nature, and a shining example of fortitude and leadership. It is sad to think that is message might probably be lost in the confusion and never ending chatter of our world today. However, his indomitable spirit lives on, and I think his words and deeds are of fine use for anyone who prepares to be successful on Steemit. Steem, or should I say, Resteem...ON!

Thank you for the comment. I thought it was appropriate to grab a football related quote, even if his Packers weren't in the running. Fortitude and leadership are two excellent descriptions of this legend.

I love celebrating inspiring people. Quotes are wonderful! Keep up the great shares.

Lombardi's indomitable spirit, resilience and tenacity is definitely worthy of emulation by authors on Steemit!
