Kick Butt Tip: Be Better Than The Day Before
From San Francisco 49er pro football legend Steve Young: “The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about being better than you were the day before.”
I hope those special words from a legendary pro football quarterback inspire you as much as it does me. Now, looking back, life was not always peaches and cream for quarterback Steve Young.
In fact, prior to becoming an NFL star, Steve Young ran into a lot of issues while attending Brigham Young University in Utah. At one point, he considered dropping out of college, quitting football and returning home. But, when Young shared those plans with his dad, his father said Steve, “you can quit, but you cannot come home.” Those words helped turn Young’s life around.
Steve Young is proof that if you have the desire and if you are willing to put in the work, it’s likely that you will be one of if not the best in your chosen field.
In taking a look at the NFL record book, Young’s records are amazing! A few of those records include over 33,000 passing yards along with 232 passing touchdowns plus over 4000 rushing yards and 43 touchdowns. Not many quarterbacks can throw and also run the ball as effectively as Steve Young.
Let me share another amazing fact about quarterback Steve Young. When he became a San Francisco 49er, Young was the backup quarterback for the awesome Joe Montana. Montana led San Fran to four Super Bowl victories. When Montana moved on, Steve Young stepped into the quarterback position and led the 49ers to their fifth Super Bowl victory.
My Friend, you know exactly what to do. May I encourage you to just go do it. Take action now. Like Steve Young and Joe Montana, step up and make it happen.
