Bettis has the sixth-most rushing yards in league history, rushing for 13,662 yards and 91 touchdowns during a 13-year career spent with the Steelers and Rams.

Last Night Jerome Bettis was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He ended his speech with the four things that will get you to greatness:

  1. Sacrifice
  2. Pain: Enduring physical and mental pain in your life
  3. Failure: Understand you will fail, but how will you recover?
  4. Love: If you love it, it’s not a job it’s a passion

“He had knockout stats, a knockout career, everything you wanted in a Hall of Famer, he had it. Super Bowl, inspiration, played hurt, consistency, didn’t fumble, and he had the stats”

“If you are willing to go through that failure and understand that ‘I will be successful’ … then greatness is in your path”
