Came across this wonderful quote that
sends chills down my spine EVERY time
I read it.
Its taken from Vince Lombardi’s passage
titled, “What it Takes to Be No.1.”
The same guy who is named after
the NFL’s Super Bowl trophy.
In it, he talks about how losing is not
an option. How it’s become this country’s “zeal”
to win at everything.
But that isnt the best part of the quote.
The best line in there is the last one.
One many of you feel after you’ve
finished up a session of Linebacker Fitness
including body weight exercises
in between rounds. The same taught on DVD 2.
Going toe to toe with YOURSELF.
Pushing yourself each round until you get
better and better.
It reads, “I firmly believe in man’s finest hour– his greatest
fulfillment to all he holds dear — is that moment when he
has worked his heart out in a good cause
and lies exhausted on the filed of battle — victorious.”
That single feeling is what keeps you coming back
for more and more. And MORE — again and again.
The “good cause” is your health.
The “battle field” is this world turned upside
down with poor eating and exercise habits
that exists every where you turn.
But not you.
You stand “victorious” every time you finish
up a round. That’s the sense
of accomplishment running through
your veins – - with the help of those endorphins.
