12 Great Quotes from NFL Coaches

The high holy time known as Super Bowl Sunday is upon us. Behold these revelations from our modern-day American priests: the NFL head coaches. Whoever has ears, let them hear…

  • Success isn’t permanent and failure isn’t fatal. [Da Coach, Mike Ditka]
  • You can achieve only that which you will do. [George Halas]
  • Try not to do too many things at once. Know what you want, the number one thing today and tomorrow. Persevere and get it done. [George Allen]
  • Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. [Vince Lombardi]
  • On a team, it’s not the strength of the individual players, but it is the strength of the unit and how they all function together. [Bill Belichick]
  • You fail all the time, but you aren’t a failure until you start blaming someone else. [Bum Phillips]
  • Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. [Lou Holtz–he coached the Jets for a year in the 70s]
  • Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it. [George Halas]
  • Adversity is an opportunity for heroism. [Marv Levy]
  • The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. [Vince Lombardi]
  • The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. [Jimmy Johnson]
  • Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace. [Ditka]

Ryan Dunn has a bunch of certificates on his desk. A few are awards for content production and marketing. Another marks his ordination as a minister. One says he’s earned a BA in English from the University of Iowa. The certificate next to that says he earned an MA in Christian Practice from Duke (with honors!). Ryan is most proud, though, of the things he’s created: The Compass Podcast, some deep content on RethinkChurch.org, a series of practical spiritual advice videos, a long-lasting marriage, and fantastic little boy. (He enjoyed A LOT of help on all of those projects, especially the last two.)
