Lou Holtz

Lou Holtz - Winning Football Coach and Motivational Speaker

Lou Holtz is a retired winning football coach who was elected to the College Football of Fame in 2008. He is a gifted motivational speaker.  The following are excerpts from a speech he gave at a Get Motivation seminar.

Goal Setting

We have talked about goal setting in this blog before.

Mr. Holtz advises people to take it one step further and write down a goal or dream in five categories.

  • Business
  • Financial
  • Fun
  • Personal
  • Religion

He went on to explain that he EVERYTHING he had written down, he has now been able to check off his list.  Can you say the same?


Mr. Holtz recommends four steps to achieving success in sales:

  • Attitude – Your attitude, your choice.  You have to have fun and enthusiasm.  If you aren’t, how can you impart those to your customers or distributors.
  • Passion to Win –  Can you live with failures?
  1. Your passion to win must include the willingness to make sacrifices
  2. You must get rid of all excuses of why you can’t do this.
  • Focus on your purpose
  1. Help customers to get what they want.
  2. Keep it simple
  3. Believe that you are doing that person a favor by bringing them the information on your product or service.
  • Have meaningful relationships – Lift people up.  This ability depends on your own level of self confidence.
  1. Do the right thing – generates trust
  2. Do it to the best of your ability
  3. Show people that you care

If you should ever have the opportunity to hear Lou Holtz speak, we highly recommend it.  He has words of wisdom for everyone.  He is very witty and entertaining and illustrates his points with stories from his own career and life.  Everyone should have a Lou Holtz in their corner.

I want to part with this last quote “Happiness is nothing more than a poor memory.”  Made me laugh, I hope it does you also.

As always, wishing you an abundance of all things good.

If you want to have an online business, you have to learn internet marketing.  Why should you want an online business?

Here are the benefits of a home business versus a brick and mortar business.

  • Low Cost – The cost is extremely low for a business startup.  No mortgage or rent.  No utilities  No furnishings.  No Salaries.  The cost of advertising is negligent.
  • 24/7 – Where can you have a business that’s open 24/7?  Well, there’s Walmart, but you can’t run that single handed.
  • BE YOUR OWN BOSS – to me this should be number 1.  Is it scary for some people.    But if you work hard for a living wouldn’t you rather work hard for yourself and your financial future?
  • Flexibility – No more 8 – 5 or midnights or weekends.  That is unless you want to.  I am an early morning person and my best time starts at 5.  By noon, I am done, I want to be in the pool.
  • Equal Opportunity – This one is great.  It doesn’t matter what race you are, how old you are, if you are cross-eyed, 7 feet tall, or what country you are from.    It doesn’t matter.  All that matters is your determination.
  • Free Ads – Don’t we all love Free?
  • Sell Anything – Let’s face it.  You can sell anything on the internet.  With the internet, the individual levels the playing field with the big giants of retail.  And sometimes we get ahead.  Have you noticed how even the big companies are on Facebook and twitter?
  • No recession online – Online sales continue to rise.  It is advantageous for people to shop online.  Why?  Competitive prices, wider selection, never leave their armchair, save on gas.
  • Internet Marketing strategies are simple to learn with great training.   Learn to use the existing tools.  A good internet marketing tool expedites your success.

With these benefits to online selling, what’s stopping you today?

Implement the four characteristics of success and create financial freedom.

  • Desire to change
  • Willingness to learn
  • Make no excuses
  • Take action  If you don’t take that first step, right, wrong,or indifferent, you don’t move forward.

Wishing you all the best in everything.
