A while ago, my bride and I were blessed to join a small group of business leaders in a morning chat session with coach Lou Holtz. He’s a remarkable man, and a testimony to the ability of anyone to rise to the top from very humble beginnings.
His homespun humor is disarming —his message timeless.
In the 17-minute video below, he gives a commencement speech to the 2015 class at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio, not far from the small West Virginia town in which he was born.
The speech is peppered with some classic one-liners, but he covers three basic rules that he’s lived by during his adult life, and which are worthy of anyone no matter their age or occupation.
Enjoy and profit by it. (Hat tip DE)
