Lou Holtz Motivational Quotations:

  • “Remember. Every day, some ordinary person does something extraordinary. Today, it's your turn.”

  •  “Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.”

  • “The answers to these questions will determine your success or failure. 1) Can people trust me to do what's right? 2) Am I committed to doing my best? 3) Do I care about other people and show it? If the answers to these questions are yes, there is no way you can fail.”

  • “Teamwork is the foundation of success. The three universal questions that an individual asks of his coach, player, employee, employer are: Can I trust you? Are you committed to excellence? And, do you care about me?”

  •  “The price of LEADERSHIP is RESPONSIBILITY....and part of that responsibility is to STAY POSITIVE whether you feel like it or not.”

  •  “I follow three rules: Do the right thing, do the best you can, and always show people you care.”

  •  “The greatest power God gave us is the power to choose. We have the opportunity to choose whether we're going to act or procrastinate, believe or doubt, pray or curse, help or heal. We also choose whether we're going to be happy or whether we're going to be sad.”

  •  “Do what's right. Be on time, be polite, and be honest; remain free from drugs; and if you have any questions, get out your Bible. 2. Do your best. Mediocrity is unacceptable when you are capable of doing better. 3. Treat others as you want to be treated. Practice love and understanding.”

  •  “Everybody needs four things in life: Something to do, someone to love, someone to believe in and something to hope for.”

  •  “There are certain things in this world we all have in common such as time. Everybody has sixty seconds to a minute, sixty minutes to an hour, twenty-four hours to a day. The difference is what we do with that time and how we use it.”

  •  “Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care; and the other twenty percent are glad you have them.”

  •  “Don't ever promise more than you can deliver, but always deliver more than you promise.”

  1.  “Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they're making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that's the difference.”

  •  “Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it.”

  •  “Everybody is looking for instant success, but it doesn't work that way. You build a successful life one day at a time.”

  •  “It always amazes me that spectators want to coach, coaches want to officiate, and officials just want to watch the game”

  • "You might not be able to outthink, outmarket or outspend your competition, but you can outwork them.”

  •  “One day you are drinking the wine, and they next day you are picking the grapes.”

  •  “Everyone wants to win on Saturday afternoon when the game is played. It’s what you do the other six days that decides the outcome”

  •  “I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.”

  •  “We aren't where we want to be; we aren't where we ought to be; but thank goodness we aren't where we used to be.”

  •  “What you are capable of achieving is determined by your talent and ability. What you attempt to do is determined by your motivation. How well you do something is determined by your attitude.”

  •  “You were not born a winner, and you were not born a loser. You are what you make yourself be.”

  •  “I can't explain why a bride buys her wedding dress, whereas a groom rents his tux.”

  •  “The standards you establish for others must reflect the standards you set for yourself. No one will follow a hypocrite.”

  •  “In this world you're either growing or you're dying so get in motion and grow.”

  •  “People eyeing you as a potential leader tend to ask three questions: Are you committed? Do you care about me? Can I trust you?”

  •  “You must have dreams and goals if you are ever going to achieve anything in this world.”

  •  “I feel that God wants me to coach; otherwise, he wouldn't have put the desire in me.”

  •  “You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.”

  •  “Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.”

  •  “If you make a fist and hold it for two hours, you won't be able to pick up a glass because you'll be so weak. Let's stay loose. Let's have fun.”

  •  “Those who know Notre Dame, no explanation’s necessary. Those who don’t, no explanation will suffice.”

  •  “In life, be a participant, not a spectator.”

  •  “You'll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him.”

  •  “Sacrifice, discipline and prayer are essential. We gain strength through God's word. We receive grace from the sacrament. And when we fumble due to sin - and it's gonna happen - confession puts us back on the field.”

  •  “Adversity is another way to measure the greatness of individuals. I never had a crisis that didn't make me stronger.”

  •  “Never settle for second when first is available”

  •  “If you don't make a total commitment to whatever you are doing, then you start looking to bail out the first time the boat starts leaking.”

  •  “If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.”

  •  “It's always better to face the truth, no matter how uncomfortable, than to continue coddling a lie.”

  •  “If you continually ask yourself, "What's important now?", you won't waste time on the trivial.”

  •  “It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.”

  •  “Virtually nothing is impossible in this world if you just put your mind to it and maintain a positive attitude.”

  •  “Underconfidence breeds underachievement.”

  •  “It's the extra effort after you have done your best that creates victory.”

  •  “I follow three rules: Do the right thing, do the best you can, and always show people you care. You’ve got to make a sincere attempt to have the right goals to begin with, then go after them with appropriate effort, and remember that you can’t really achieve anything great without the help of others.”

  •  “Nothing is as good as it seems and nothing is as bad, but somewhere between reality falls.”

  •  “Do what's right! Do the best you can and treat others the way you want to be treated because they will ask three questions: (1) Can I trust you? (2) Are you committed? (3) Do you care about me as a person?”

  •  “Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.”

  •  “No one has ever drowned in sweat.”

  •  “Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.”

  •  “You've got to have great athletes to win, I don't care who the coach is. You can't win without good athletes but you can lose with them. This is where coaching makes the difference.”

  •  “The only people who aren't going to be criticized are those who do absolutely nothing”

  •  “If you've been there, no explanation is necessary. If you haven't, none is adequate.”

  •  “God answers prayers, but he doesn't always answer it your way.”

  •  “So what if someone wrote your obituary... that doesn't mean you are obligated to die.”

  •  “You aren't going to find anybody that's going to be successful without making a sacrifice and without perseverance.”

  •  “How you respond to the challenge in the second half will determine what you become after the game, whether you are a winner or a loser.”

  •  “We are not going to win because you have a new head coach, any more than you are going to fix a flat tire by changing the driver. We will win the minute all of us get rid of excuses as to why we can't win and stop wallowing in self-pity.”

  •  “Had I been a great athlete, I'm not sure I would have even gone into coaching. I may have turned out feeling that my life ended when my athletic career ended, as happens so many times with various athletes.”

  • “I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You learn a lot from it.”

  •  “You don't go to Notre Dame to learn something, you go to Notre Dame to be somebody.”

  •  “Broadcasting is easy; you just talk until you think of something to say.”

  •   “I'll assure you this: I will have nothing to do with politics.”

  •  “If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven't done anything today.”

  •  “If you don't demand that your people maintain. High performances to remain on your team, Why should they be proud of the association?”

  •  “No matter how bad someone has it, there are others who have it worse. Remembering that makes life a lot easier and allows you to take pleasure in the blessings you have been given.”

  •  “I do know this: God does answer your prayers, but it's not always in the way you expect. God knows what's best for us, though, so there's no need to worry when things don't go how we originally wanted them to go.”

  •  “Coaching is about helping young people have a chance to succeed. There is no more awesome responsibility than that. One of the greatest honors a person can have is being called 'Coach.'”
