Welcome to the week!
I found today’s Monday Motivation in the Ravens’ locker room.
My poor Ravens. We’re not having such a great season. But yesterday, Ray Lewis spoke to the team before the start of the game with the San Diego Chargers. And he showed, once again, why he masters motivational speaking.
“Baltimore Locker Room Nov 1” Courtesy The Official & Only Facebook Page of Ray Lewis reminded the team:
Yesterday’s win only takes us to 2 and 6 for the season so far. Not great. But as Lewis reminds us:
One and 6 doesn’t define who you are. What defines who you are is what you do when you’re 1 and 6. –Ray Lewis
His words seemed to work for the team! But this talk can hold serious lessons for us all: Our challenges don’t define us; how we respond to them do.
We probably have some “1 and 6 moments” in our lives. No matter. As Lewis said, we can either “make the play or watch the play being made.”
So for today, and this week, let’s decide to “make the play” and keep plugging away at our goals.
“Fight your fight.” And win!
