Following Beyonce’s electrifying performance last night at the 2014 VMA’s and Jackie Robinson West’s win of the US Little League Baseball Championship on Saturday, I could not help but to be inspired. Opposite ends of the social spectrum yet sharing a common theme – they were both excellent in their pursuit.
Naturally, it led me to think of Beyonce’s tour de force Super Bowl performance that shut down the lights in the SuperDome. That performance began with lines from Vince Lombardi’s iconic speech, “Excellence Must Be Pursued, it must be wooed…”
For today’s Motivational Mondays, I give you the whole speech in this inspiring video, the text of it below and Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance. With all of this excellence in this one post, I hope you too will be as inspired as I am to continue to pursue your dreams with vigor and with a goal of excellence! Happy Monday!
“Excellence must be pursued, it must be wooed with all of one’s might and every bit of effort that we have each day there’s a new encounter, each week is a new challenge. All of the noise and all of the glamour all of the color all of the excitement all of the rings and all of the money. These are the things that linger only in the memory. But the spirit, the will to excel, the will to win, these are the things that endure.”
— Vince Lombardi (The winning coach from Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II)
