Win One for the Gipper
We each have our own stories of success. In today’s podcast, Kyle shares the inspiring story of Knute Rockne. He is said to be the all time greatest college football coach.
Their team was to play the final game in one season when one night one of their players, George Gipp, lay dying. Coach Rockne asked Gipp if there was something he could do for him.
Gip replied, “Coach, there’s gonna come a time that you’re gonna want to win a game more than anything else in the world. When that time comes, tell the boys to get one for the Gipper.” With that, they won the game.
The Happiness Factor
Happiness has a lot to do with success. As Kyle recalls it, every goal is set to provide self with more happiness. Once you achieve happiness, you’re able to help more people.
Happiness deals more with your destination than your present situation. To discuss this further, Kyle recommends the book How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big by Scott Adams.
