Lou Holtz's Life Lessons
The ESPN analyst and former Notre Dame football coach on what we can do to achieve our goals.
Lou Holtz is considered one of the best college football coaches in history, working with teams at The College of William and Mary, North Carolina State, University of Arkansas, University of Minnesota, University of South Carolina, and, most notably, Notre Dame, where he led the team to nine post-season bowl games and a national championship over his 11 seasons there. For a brief stint, he was also the head coach of the New York Jets. Currently an ESPN analyst, author, and motivational speaker, Holtz's latest book, the best-selling "Wins, Losses, and Lessons," tells the story of his life and faith, and how the success and struggles he's had both on the field and in his personal life have made him the person he is today.
One of your favorite quotes is "The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity. "What would you tell someone who says he's never had any opportunities and uses that as an excuse for his poor station in life?
