Playing to your strengths cartoon!

April 21, 2009

I did a few cartoons on ‘Playing to your Strengths’ for a UK based company. Here’s one I liked but they thought the football/soccer theme didn’t quite match their web site theme. I’m currently working on two they went for and will post a link to their site shortly.

Playing to your strengths!

Playing to your strengths!

Here’s a few quotes I found while researching…

“A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.” – William Arthur Ward

“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” – Vince Lombardi

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle…” – Napoleon Hill

Vince Lombardi motivational quotes!

Cartoon to illustrate some of Vince Lombardi’s inspirational quotes!

Here’s some of my favorite VL quotes about Winning, Winners…

***Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Win Win Win!

Win Win Win!

***We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

***Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.

***People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.

***The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

Hope you enjoyed these!?

Charlene Belitz and Meg Lundstrom, authors of the excellent book, “The Power of Flow” describe affirmations like this, ” Affirmations are positive statements you make to yourself, which consciously program the unconscious part of your mind and set the stage for self-fulfilling prophecy. They can be extremely powerful in producing results .” You can see the full article by Michael Mural at:
