Vince Lombardi, some argue was one of the greatest coaches ever in the NFL. He turned the Green Bay Packers from perennial losers into back-to-back winners of NFL titles in the 1960s. In this text, Vince Lombardi Jr takes his father's speech, Self Knowledge is the Root of Character. Character is the Ground for Integrity. Integrity is Foundation for Leadership, and examines what it takes to be number one, in whatever you do. This book shows you how to be number one in your heart, in the heart of your loved ones, in the community, in your home, and at work. Being number one is about being first, but equally about finishing what you start, rather than quitting and compromising on your goals. Vince Lombardi Jr uses personal stories about his father, as well as excerpts from speeches and quotes from the legendary coach, and others, to provide wisdom and motivation for readers.
