Coach Lombardi wisdom for Business Owners

Coach Lombardi said, "Winners are made." illustrated by a potter forming or molding a piece of clay on a potters wheel.
Coach Lombardi: “Winners are made…” What makes YOUR Business Successful?

Coach Lombardi shares some wisdom…
for Business Owners to apply!

Coach Lombardi is still considered one of the most inspirational coaches of all times. He told the truth about the good, bad, and ugly of success and victory. He didn’t sugar coat anything. He was a man of integrity and commanded it from his players and organization. Mastering the game of winning was how Coach Lombardi raised a football organization to success, which we say is successful business performance.

 “Leaders are made. They are not born. They are made by hard effort,
which is the price which all of us must pay
to achieve any goals that is worthwhile.”
~Coach Lombardi

“Leaders are made”…
Effective leaders are winners

Recently I spoke with a client who finally surrendered into being “made”. He didn’t like his struggle any longer. He and I have worked together for a while and he’d dabble with success. He thought it had to be done differently. What was amazing? He, like many others, chose to exhaust himself before surrendering.

Once he surrendered and decided to be coachable, everything began to change. Unfortunately this is too common.

… “They are made by hard effort, which is the price”…

Coach Lombardi really nailed it! The hard effort is the price for success. Over the years, I repeatedly see clients think it all has to be hard effort. Guess what? The hardest effort is working to surrender and learn a new way of being. Not the new way itself.

NOTE: Most aspects of business are simple.
You may need to learn some. You may need to do some activities you don’t like. Do them. Once you can, delegate or outsource them.

TIP: Successful performance of YOUR Business doesn’t have to be an ongoing battle on all fronts around the clock!
You just need to reach out for guidance from other who know what you don’t. Then apply their wisdom without fail.

Coach Lombardi was an expert at helping people achieve their goals and perpetuate success. Read this post I wrote 2+ years ago: Lessons from Vince Lombardi. It’s still one of my most popular posts!

If Coach Lombardi were a Business Coach, I believe his first question would be, “Are you prepared to do what it takes to be number one?” If you are and don’t know what to do next, call this Master Business Coach and learn how to “play to win“!
