9780062702159: Winning Is A Habit: Vince Lombardi on Winning, Success, and the Pursuit of Excellence

Vince Lombardi's uncanny ability to motivate and his unstoppable drive to succeed have made him the standard against which all NFL coaches are measured. Winning Is a Habit captures the charisma of the legend whose no-loss attitude in football was also his attitude in life.

Winning Is a Habit is divided into 11 subject categories -- from faith to football, from winning to racism, from family to business to himself -- reflecting the diversity of his insights and the power of his words.

Vince Lombardi taught that success in football and in his life is built on perseverance and hard work, lessons that continue to apply today.

Winning

Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing.

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all-the-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 a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing....

It's a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That's why they're there -- to compete. They know the rules and the objectiveswhen they get in the game. The objective is to win -- fairly, squarely, decently, by the rules -- but to win.

The will to excel and the will to win, they endure. They are more important than any events that occasion them. I don't care what people say about me as long as I win. That's what I get paid for.

There is no room for second place here. There is one place here and that's first place. I've finished second twice in my time here, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There's a second place bowl game, and it's a hinky-dinky football game, held in a hinky-dinky town, played by hinky-dinky football players. That's all second place is: Hinky-Dinky.
