Life & Career Lessons Learned from Football

Superbowl LIII is this weekend and this Sunday we will watch the LA Rams and New England Patriots battle it out for the win. As football is on everyone’s mind this week it becomes clear that in addition to entertainment, this sport has a lot to offer in terms of life and career lessons if we stop and reflect on the art of playing football.

As Vince Lombardi once said, “Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication, and respect for authority.”

Football teaches the important skills Lombardi mentions in his quote above along with teamwork, diligence, and many others. In honour of the football celebrations this weekend we’ve put together a list of articles outlining exactly what lessons we can take away from the sports game we see on the big screen.
