For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul. Mark 8:36
“Many men see me as a success because of the three Super Bowl rings and the NASCAR championships, and I’m not going to pretend I haven’t lived what looks like a charmed life. But what guys want to know, everywhere I go, is how they can succeed too. And they’re not just talking about becoming rich or famous or winning trophies. They want to be happy. They want to be good husbands and fathers, good people. They want to find true success and relevance.
What I want you to know is that it makes sense that my name is Joe. I’m your ‘Average Joe’. Forget what you might have seen or read in the media, or anything else you might have heard; I’m no different from you. I’m a regular guy who happened to see his dream come true. I don’t apologize for being competitive, striving for excellence, or refusing to quit. The best lessons I’ve learned in life have come from failures, my own shortcomings, and buying into some of the biggest myths our modern society has to tell.
But if life is a game, then you and I are playing the most important contest of all! And all my experience in leading men – as a coach and team builder – has convinced me that to win a game, you need a game plan.”
Coach Joe Gibbs
