Ted Lasso Goldfish Quote

Ted Lasso is known for the main character’s infallible charm and the soccer team he coaches. But one of his most inspirational quotes isn’t about the mechanics of soccer, but choosing to change your mindset on the game and life itself.

The Ted Lasso goldfish quote reads, “You know what the happiest animal on Earth is? It’s a goldfish. You know why? It’s got a 10-second memory. Be a goldfish.”

While it seems silly at face value, it actually holds some great wisdom for any person honing in on a skill or passion. Don’t look back at all the winnings and losses. Forget all you’ve done before. If you only focus on your past success, you’ll ride on your laurels and become complacent. If you only focus on your failures, you’ll lose your morale. Only focus on the now, and that’s how you become better than you were before.

Who knew Ted Lasso quotes could hold so much wisdom?
