I am on the road today so I have very little time to actually stop and write. I will just be leaving a short post about one of my favorite quotes. 

It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get back up. 

– Vince Lombardi

Aside from being a huge fan of football, the sport in which Lombardi is famous, I am also a big fan of redemption. This quote is about being able to recover from the “knock downs” and obstacles of life. I love this quote because there is no way to win if you never know how to recover from a loss, Lombardi knew this so he taught his team accordingly. Lombardi led his team to five championships, and the current championship trophy is even named after him. There are many stories about the life and exploits of Vince Lombardi, but through all the stories the only highlights are his victories. If Lombardi never got over his defeats he would have never been as great as he became, so it is beneficial for everybody to try again after every defeat, because you never know what greatness is possible.
