Wellness CoachingAt times, I find that quotes from others absolutely keep me motivated and committed to who I want to be. Words can become extremely powerful inspirations, and the best part is that many quotes call us to action.  Another great thing is that inspirational phrases hit each of us in different lights.

Today’s blog is the first series of “Coach Quotes.” Below you’ll find some incredible quotes from current and past coaches. I’ve deciphered them the way they strike me, but which one hits close to home for you?

“Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit.” (Bear Bryant)

  • Have a road map of goals, when you reach one keep striving to attain others. If you never quit, it’s pretty tough to fail.  

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” (Vince Lombardi)

  • We have to want it. We have to invite change. Without a solid commitment to ourselves, it’s difficult to achieve what we desire.

“Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won’t taste good.” (Joe Paterno)

  • Honor meaning honesty. If we’re honest about the changes we’re making, the foods we’re logging, and the amount of exercise we’re accomplishing then it really does spark our wellness buds to keep going.

No coach has ever won a game by what he knows; it’s what his players know that counts.” (Paul Bryant)

  • At the end of the day it what’s you learn about yourself. The player must understand and have the knowledge of what needs to happen in order to win their lifestyle game.

“You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward. But both those methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self motivation.” (Homer Rice)

  • Fear is not what drives us, prizes are not a true motivator. Motivation must come from within (Intrinsic). We must do for our family, friends, but most importantly for OURSELVES.

“What makes a good coach? Complete Dedication.” (George Halas)

  • Make sure your coach listens and cares. Under-promises and over-delivers. Dedicated to helping you week in and week out.

Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period. (Lou Holtz)

  • We must hold ourselves accountable. For instance, “I’m not going to eat that, it’s not part of my plan today” or “I will wake up at 6am and hit the treadmill for 45 minutes before work.” These are the types of self-discipline statements that make an individual successful .
