Here! Ever felt overwhelmed or defeated? Ever pushed through that, put blinders on, kept moving regardless of anything? That’s what Vic Beasley, Jr., OLB of the Atlanta Falcons, did this past season…and boy has that paid off. This article, via David Newton at ESPN, is well worth the read and will likely inspire you in some way. In short, Vic was drowning in negativity from people around him and in the media (let’s call them the external critics) due to his performance last season. But, Vic didn’t let the naysayers get to him. Instead, he stayed positive and focused, and kept moving forward. He has been on the most dominating defensive forces in the NFL this year and a massive contributor to the Falcons 2016 success and resilience. It’s an important lesson in life and in any profession. There are always going to be people who don’t want to support, who don’t want to have faith, but they cannot control someone else’s persistence and drive. And, as the saying goes, “opinions are like assholes…” You know how that goes. But, it’s so true. Best way to proceed: look at what Vic did, mirror, repeat in your own life.
