7 Life Lessons Learned from Remember the Titans

“Change” is key to success. In order for Denzel Washington’s Coach Boone to unify all of his players and coaches and develop a great football team, he has to change the way the team practices on the field as well as how they live and think off of it. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 – To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven)

“Take a lesson from ancestors.” In order to make good decisions and navigate through life, you have to look to the ones who came before you. No matter how dire your situation seems, someone has probably been in your shoes before. Be a student of the game. Don’t make the same mistakes others have. (1Cor 10:11– Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition…)

Attitude reflect leadership.” But when you find yourself in the driver’s seat, remember the different types of leaders you’ve followed and learned from. The best way to get a message across isn’t by screaming it, it’s by doing it.(1 Peter 5:3 – Neither as being lords over [God’s] heritage, but being examples to the flock.)

“Leave no doubt.” You may not always get the results you desire, but if you make sure no one can doubt your effort at the end, more times than not things are going to work in your favor. (Galatians 6:9 – And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.)

“We all have a Ronnie Bass inside of us.” We’ve all been in situations where we didn’t think we could muster the strength to do what was required of us, but you can. (Joshua 1:9 Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee wheresoever thou goest.)

“Sometimes, you just gotta cut a man loose.” When you have toxic people in your life, the only real option is to cut them loose. If you don’t, you’re going to end up hurt or in trouble, one way or the other.( Proverbs 14:7  (KJV) Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.)

“Ain’t no mountain high enough.” The limitations we all place on our capabilities and the fears we let control us are just that: man-made excuses for not shooting for the stars. (Philippians 4:13  (KJV) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.)
