The Quotable Nick Saban

There’s no doubt that Nick Saban is a great coach and awe-inspiring leader. Over the years he has given us some profound nuggets of wisdom and we want to share the best ones with you here. The next time you need a pep talk, look no further than these words of wisdom from Coach Nick Saban.

Words of Wisdom from Saint Nick

“We all have anxiety about things. We all have little insecurities, but eventually, you have to face your fears if you want to be successful, and everybody has some fear of failure.”

“There are two pains in life. There is the pain of discipline and the pain of disappointment. If you can handle the pain of discipline, then you’ll never have to deal with the pain of disappointment.”

“Discipline is not punishment. Discipline is changing someone’s behavior.”

“We create a standard for how we want to do things and everybody’s got to buy into that standard or you really can’t have any team chemistry. Mediocre people don’t like high-achievers and high-achievers don’t like mediocre people.”

“Focus on the process of what it takes to be successful.”

“I don’t think it’s about who you play, I think it’s about who you are.”

“You can’t win together if you don’t work together.”

“It’s not human nature to be great. It’s human nature to survive, to be average and do what you have to do to get by. That is normal. When you have something good happen, it’s the special people that can stay focused and keep paying attention to detail, working to get better and not being satisfied with what they have accomplished.”

“Eliminate the clutter and all of the things that are going on outside and focus on the things that you can control with how you go about and take care of your business. Take the other team out of the game and make it all about you and what you do.”

“One thing about championship teams is that they’re resilient. No matter what is thrown at them, no matter how deep the hole, they find a way to bounce back and overcome adversity.”

“The expectations are what they are here, and we don’t run around talking about them.”

“I think the worst thing a player can do is just not be yourself.”

“First of all, you’ve got to have a vision of ‘What kind of program do I want to have?’ Then you’ve got to have a plan to implement it. Then you’ve got to set the example that you want, develop the principles and values that are important, and get people to buy into it.”

“I certainly like to win, but I really hate to lose.”

“The way I look at it is, if you don’t want somebody to know something, don’t say it. If you don’t want them to see you do something, don’t do it.”

“When people have success, one of two things happen. They either get really satisfied and want to keep thinking about it and talking about what they did, or the success becomes a little addictive, and it makes them want to keep having more.”
