Instill Motivation – March 24.2011

Vince Lombardi, the famed Green Bay Packers football coach, was a feared disciplinarian. But he was also a great motivator. One day he chewed out a player who had missed several blocking assingments. After practice, Lombardi stormed into the locker room and saw that the player was sitting at his locker, head down, dejected. Lombardi mussed his hair, patted him on the shoulder, and said, “One of these days, you’re going to be the best guard in the NFL.”

The player was Jerry Kramer, and Kramer says he carried that positive image of himself for the rest of his career. “Lombardi’s encouragement had a tremendous impact on my whole life,” Kramer said. He went on to become a member of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and a member of the NFL’s All-50-Year-Team.

Everybody needs motivation from time to time. Motivation makes it possible to accomplish what you should accomplish. Never underestimate the power of it.

Motivate someone in your circle of influence today.

– Excerpt from “The Maxwell Daily Reader” by John C. Maxwell
