Awesome Quote by Ray Lewis

Yesterday I came across a speech where Ray Lewis was firing up the Standford University Basketball Team. Madison Martin says, regarding the speech, “I believe, showed the attitude that has enabled him to become one of the most (in my mind THE most) famed linebackers of all time.”

It was a pretty powerful prep talk. Here is a portion of it:

“So now you got to go out and show them I’m a different creature now than I was five minutes ago. Cause I’m pissed off for greatness. Because if you are not pissed off for greatness, then that means you are OK being mediocre!”

That’s good stuff.

I liked it so much that I’m making the “Get Pissed Off For Greatness” a part of this site. It’s so true in life. “Anyone who plans to accomplish above the ordinary must be consumed by a zeal that will propel them past obstacles and barriers,” says my friend Barry Cook.

Passion speaks of intensity and emotion.

So let’s personalize this today. Say the above quote by Ray Lewis but put your name or in the first person or have a little fun and do it in the third person!

“So now I, (your name) have to go out and show them I’m a different person than I was five minutes ago. Cause I (your name) am pissed off for greatness. Because if I’m not pissed off for greatness, then that means I’m OK with mediocre!”

And you know what? I’m not OK with living a mediocre life, and neither are you!

Okay, now back to the word passion. Whenever or wherever you find passion you will find a lot enthusiasm.

Here is a great quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

It’s time to get Pissed Off for Greatness. Be passionate and enthusiastic about your life and dreams today!
