Two Things I Learned from Lou Holtz

Millions of people across the world carry the wisdom of Lou Holtz throughout their daily lives…and that’s forgetting that he was a championship level college football coach, one of the best ever. He is one of the greatest leaders ever and so many of the stories he’s told me over the years have served as motivation that I can carry with me every day.

As part of Steiner Sports’ ongoing speaker series with the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium, Lou shared some interested stories at a recent Q&A. There were two things in particular that struck me.

  1. Anything that happens to you in your life happens because of choices you make. Work hard and believe.

Lou wasn’t an obvious choice for football early in life. He grew up during the

Great Depression and no one in his family had ever gone to college…plus, he was a small guy. But, he developed a passion for the game of football and was able to take advantage of opportunities he had to get into coaching after he got one thing done: he had the belief that he could succeed. And, with that came a willingness to work hard to accomplish something.

  1. It’s crazy how things work out in your life.

You might not believe it today, but the opportunities you dream about are only a “tomorrow” away. Achieving your dreams is incredibly difficult, but putting in the hard work to get to where you want to be lends itself to one thing: luck. Getting those lucky, can’t-miss opportunities in your life means that someone else has taken notice to how you carry yourself and what kind of person you are. Always set yourself up for luck.

Some truly inspiring stuff from Lou:

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
