I saw this quote somewhere and fell in love with it. I wanted to make a block with this on it. We liked it so much, we decide to give it to family too, but did not know what quote would be a favorite or not, so we decided to go with four. That way they would have options. There are four main quotes, but found that one can mix and match and get some humorous ones too.
We found the "Inches make Champions" from a quote by Vincent Thomas Lombardi. It is the daily small things we do in our careers or families is what makes the difference. Here is the excerpt that I found with the quote.
Under Vincent Thomas Lombardi's direction, the Green Bay Packers collected six division titles, five NFL championships, two Super Bowls, and record of 98-30-4. Lombardi knew a lot about winning. If football is a game of inches, so is career success. In the competitive world, you seldom win by a landslide.
Buzz Sullivan, a high school diving coach, said "A champion is someone who goes so far they can't go another inch—and then they go that inch." Winning in business or in personal life is all about inches: going small distances successfully, then going farther still.
