The Saints won! It was an amazing game and I am so glad the Saints got the victory for New Orléans. So in honor of the Saints Superbowl victory today I wanted to talk about the love of the underdog. The saints were the underdogs in yesterdays Superbowl and throughout history we’ve loved the underdogs.
Most movies, books and other entertainment is based on the underdog winning. So why do we love the underdog so much? I think it’s because when we see the underdog win, we believe its possible for us to win. We all feel like the underdog sometimes when life gets us down its easy to give up but when we decided to fight most of the time we’ll end up winning.
However we have to believe that no matter what, no matter how big the obstacles may seem we will win. So here are a few quotes to inspire the underdog in you.
“Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most of all other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you” – Jeffrey Gitomer
“You may not realize it when it happens, but at kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” – Walt Disney
“Adversity causes some men to break, others to break records” – William A Ward
“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.” – Charles “Tremendous” Jones
“The greatest glory in living lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fail.” – Nelson Mandella
“Never, never, never, never give up” – Winston Churchill
When the underdog wins it’s a beautiful thing, when we win it’s a beautiful thing. Every victory we win is a beautiful thing and life is generally is a beautiful thing. Yes everything is beautiful today =] So as you go about your business remember to push on through the obstacles to your victory. It’s totally worth it.
Until tomorrow, be blessed, stay strong and never give up,
