  • From big laughs to serious moments, Ted Lasso has taken the world by storm. Coaches far & wide have gained inspiration from Ted’s character & approach to coaching.

    Here are 15 of the best lines from the show you might use while coaching.

    Let’s have some fun!

    • “Takin’ on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse. If you’re comfortable while you’re doin’ it, you’re probably doin’ it wrong.”
    • “You beating yourself up is like Woody Allen playing the clarinet. I don’t wanna hear it.”

    • “For me, success is not about the wins and losses. It’s about helping these young fellas be the best versions of themselves on and off the field.”
    • “You know what the happiest animal on earth is? It’s a goldfish. You know why? Got a ten-second memory. Be a goldfish, Sam.”
    • “I think if you care about someone and you got a little love in your heart, there ain’t nothin you can’t get through together.”
    • “I believe in hope. I believe in believe.”
    • “All right, fellas, you gotta remember, your body is like day-old rice. If it ain’t warmed up properly, something real bad could happen.”
    • “I’m sorry Nate, I have real tricky time hearing people who don’t believe in themselves.”
    • Rebecca: “Oh, do you believe in ghosts, Ted?
      Ted: “I do. But more importantly, I believe they need to believe in themselves.”
    • “I think that you might be so sure that you’re one in a million that sometimes you forget that out there, you’re just one of 11.”
    • “Please do me this favor, will you? Lift your heads up & look around this locker room. Look at everybody else in here. And I want you to be grateful you’re going through this sad moment with all these other folks because…”
    • “…I promise you, there is something worse out there than being sad. And that is being alone and being sad. Ain’t no one in this room alone.”
    • Coach Beard: “Why you windin’ him up?
      Ted Lasso: “Because he’s the one, coach. If we’re gonna make an impact here, the first domino needs to fall right inside of that man’s heart.”
    • “If we’re ok with doing one thing wrong, means we are one day closer to being ok with doing everything wrong!”
    • “What do you get when you mix a Rhinoceros with an elephant?
      …..El-eph-I-know ! ”
    • “Be curious, not judgemental”

    If you haven’t seen this show, it’s fantastic! We can all learn something from Ted Lasso about coaching, relationships, and being kind to one another.
