A coach is often seen as something of a guru, with sage advice about not only the sport they work in, but also about life itself and all its trials and tribulations. Those of us who are lucky enough to have one will often turn to them when we need steering in the right direction, and these inspirational people – or at least their words – will stay with us even throughout adulthood as we apply their principles to the lives we lead.
The truth is, though, that coaches can also flounder at life, especially when they are thrown in at the deep end of something which they nothing about, like English soccer, for example. These Ted Lasso quotes might apply to the AFC Richmond coach and his struggles with a completely new sport, but they also show that with determination and the right attitude, we can succeed at anything, no matter how alien it is.
If an American college coach can take on and master the offside rule, he can do anything, and these Ted Lasso quotes will give you the confidence to take your ‘college’ experience and apply it to life’s equivalent of the Premier League, even when others believe that you will fail. Like Ted, humor, determination, and charm can take you a long way in your chosen field, so tackle life in the same way and you might just find that, against all odds, you can succeed in anything.

One, if little Ronnie Fouch offers you a candy bar, you immediately say no and get the hell out of there cause there’s a good chance that little son of a gun has pooped inside of a Butterfinger wrapper.
