What It Takes to be Number One

image

If something changed my life, indeed was football and with it the example of a great coach: Vince Lombardi. Here’s his famous speach about being number one.

From the Official (~ http://www.vincelombardi.com/number-one.html) site, and with the only purpose of enriching everyone lifes and education, here it is.

Federico Hernandez-Ruiz

“Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that’s first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don’t ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.

Every time a football player goes to ply his trade he’s got to play from the ground up – from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That’s O.K. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.

Running a football team is no different than running any other kind of organization – an army, a political party or a business. The principles are the same. The object is to win – to beat the other guy. Maybe that sounds hard or cruel. I don’t think it is.

It is a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That’s why they are there – to compete. The object is to win fairly, squarely, by the rules – but to win.

And in truth, I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat.

I don’t say these things because I believe in the ‘brute’ nature of men or that men must be brutalized to be combative. I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour — his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear — is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.”

– Coach Vincent T. Lombardi

To be true to yourself and a blessing to others regardless of who they are

image

Loved Krista Tippet interview to jonathan Sacks, from her podcast series at OnBeing. Some of the phrases that resounded most to me were:

MS. TIPPETT: One thing that I’m struck by in conversations I have with scientists — with neuroscientists, with clinical psychologists — first of all, is how science is now able to demonstrate biologically that it is when we are able to see the other, to see the welfare of the other, as somehow linked to our own, that we’re able to rise to these moral ideals.

RABBI SACKS: By being what only I can be. I give humanity what only I can give. It is my uniqueness that allows me to contribute something unique to the universal heritage of humankind.  To be true to your faith and a blessing to others regardless of their faith.

Here the links to the transcript and audio podcast.

Actuo para ver las posibilidades hechas realidad

Actuo para sublimar y compartir mi visión.

Veo un mundo bello por sus posibilidades, un mundo en el que todos sí hacemos diferencia y en el que lo único que a veces falta es disposición.

Porque aportar al mundo no requiere de distancias, inversiones, inmensos recursos o talentos extraordinarios. Solo requiere disposición y voluntad.

Actuo para generar una sonrisa, una sorpresa, una idea, una oportunidad no esperada, y que, en consecuencia, den ganas de compartirlo. Y que hace sentido total porque está conectado con un valor mayor como la ecología, la nutrición, la felicidad, etc.

3 principios para actuar

Y con ellos, mis reflexiones.

  1. Saber, ser y estar consciente. “Creo en ser competente al parecer ser, ser y tener la actitud. Creo en estar bien con el pasado para estar presente con una constante curiosidad y con ello construir el futuro”
  2. Crear belleza. “Pienso que la belleza radica en la identidad, en su reconocimiento y expresión constante. Creo que la belleza se sublima a través de elementos mágicos, elementos que evocan la maravilla del medio ambiente y la naturaleza. Que no hay momento, acción o actividad que no contengan la oportunidad de ser su mejor expresión”
  3. Hacer el bien.

Cada día un compromiso, una aventura.

Concebido para definir retos, crear opciones y dar vida a ideas, y hacer crecer las posibilidades

Aplicando el pensamiento del diseño, me dedico a generar cambios positivos y nuevas posibilidades amplificando las fortalezas en lugar de señalar las debilidades. Lo hago con perseverancia, auto control, mucho entusiasmo, inteligencia social, inmensa gratitud y optimismo.

He co-creado un espacio de trabajo que reconoce las diferencias y la importancia del equipo; este lugar fecundo está concebido para definir retos, crear opciones y dar vida a ideas, y hacer crecer las posibilidades.

Lo que hago a veces es para empresas y organizaciones, otras para servicios, productos y marcas; pero siempre, siempre es con amigos

Para aquellos que buscan, soy su aliado

Para aquellos que están seguros que la verdad se puede buscar en la acción; para aquellos que saben que la solución está ahí y que solo hace falta la distancia correcta para verla con claridad.

Para aquellos que no piensan que una fórmula lo resuelve todo pero ven que es el principio para crear nuevas preguntas.

Para aquellos que tienen la suficiente curiosidad para encontrar un mundo de posibilidades y que se permiten probar y experimentar con uno o varios caminos sin miedo a equivocarse.

Para aquellos que han podido mantenerse aprendiendo y evolucionando porque no ven un riesgo al modificar su vida o la de los demás.

Para aquellos que han podido perder la noción del tiempo haciendo lo que más les gusta, para aquelllos que han podido esbozar una sonrisa o gritar de alegría porque descubrieron algo al azar o lo resolvieron sin aplicar una técnica.

Para aquellos que han probado la satisfacción de haber visto una idea ser transformada en realidad.

Para todos ellos y para todos los que no lo viven pero necesitan nuevas posibilidades, soy su aliado.

We got through it. ~On Being.org

Excerpts from On Being, Krista Tippett interview to Br. David Steindl-Rast

The podcast is beautiful and reveling, thus this are tiny excerpts they did resound in me.

See, anxiety, or anxious, being anxious, this word comes from a root that means “narrowness,” and choking, and the original anxiety is our birth anxiety. We all come into this world through this very uncomfortable process of being born, unless you happen to be a cesarean baby. It’s really a life-and-death struggle for both the mother and the child. And that is the original, the prototype, of anxiety. At that time, we do it fearlessly, because fear is the resistance against this anxiety. See? If you go with it, it brings you into birth. If you resist it, you die in the womb. Or your mother dies.

We come into life through anxiety. And we look at it, and remember it, and say to ourselves, we made it. We got through it. We made it. In fact, the worst anxieties and the worst tight spots in our life, often, years later, when you look back at them, reveal themselves as the beginning of something completely new, a completely new life.

what really paralyzes us is fear. It’s not the anxiety, it’s the fear, because it resists. The moment we give up this resistance — and so, everything hinges on this trust in life. Trust. And with this trust, with this faith, we can go into that anxiety and say, it’s terrible, it feels awful. But it may — I trust that it is just another birth into a greater fullness.
