Vince Lombardi on What it takes to Win

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take to improve your life today.

Idea 💡

"If you can’t accept losing, you can’t win."

– Vince Lombardi

Reflection 🤔

Losing is just more information to help you win next time. (Share)

Losing and failure are not the same thing. If you're stretching beyond your comfort zone, you'll take losses often. It's essential to the process of growth.

Failure is when you stop trying altogether. It's when you get knocked down and don't get back up again. It's when you opt out of the game instead of trying to learn from the loss and get better next time.

Losing is just more information to help you win next time.

Action ✅

What if your "failure" was actually just a loss? What can you learn from it to get better?

Get back up and keep fighting.

Creator Fact 👤

Vince Lombardi is known as one of the greatest football coaches of all time. But he was also a pioneer for the sport off the field as well...

As a son of Italian immigrants who faced discrimination upon arrival to the United States, Lombardi fought for the rights of minority players in the NFL. This was a huge step in 1960's America.

A couple examples include his refusal to use separate hotels for Black and white players, and refusing to support local restauraunts who made seating distinctions based on race.

He used his influence within the game to change the culture outside of it.
