  • Lessons From Champions – Vince Lombardi
  • Friday's Champcast wraps up our 'Lessons From Champions' series this week with quotes and perspective from one of the all time greats Vince Lombardi.

    The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.
    – Do you reach you potential?
    – Do you make an impact?
    – Do others recognize your abilities?

    The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
    – Make the effort
    – Make the sacrifice
    – Make a commitment to yourself

    We would accomplish many more things if we did not think them impossible.
    – Have a mentality of the possible
    – Have an expectation of success
    – Have a desire to defy conventional thinking

  • Today's Champcast focuses on quotes from former University of Miami and Dallas Cowboys Head Coach JImmy Johnson and my perspective on what he said.

    "Like I always say, it's not how many great plays you make; it's how few bad ones you make."
    – Minimize & eliminate costly mistakes
    – Focus on doing the right things
    – Control what you can control

    "Do you want to be safe and good, or do you want to take a chance and be great?"
    – Safe doesn’t make an impact
    – Greatness requires risk
    – Bet on yourself

    "Treat a person as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a person as if he were where he could be and should be, and he will become what he could be and should be."
    – See potential in yourself and others
    – Expect more from yourself and others
    – Walk & talk your future

  • The Formula for Forming Successful Habits
  • Today's Champcast reveals my secret (ok, not so much of a secret) formula for Forming Successful Habits.

    Desire + Commitment – Excuses * Action = Successful Habits

    Desire:
    You have to want something enough to change your behavior to get it.
    You have to see what the change will mean for you.

    Commitment :
    You have to be willing to be in it for the long haul
    You have to be willing to make the necessary sacrifice

    Excuses:
    You have to eliminate the reasons, valid or invalid why you are not continuing or following through
    You have to close alleys, side routes, shortcuts and trap doors

    Action:
    Let the work be the work (Randy Gage)
    Nobody can do a habit for you, it’s 100% your doing or undoing

    Successful Habits:
    Rewarding, remarkable and renewable
