Change your thoughts and change your world. -Norman Vincent Peale
I like this quote because it is so simple, yet it speaks volumes.
The mind is such a powerful tool. A simple change in your mindset can put you on the path to reaching your goals. You have to have a wholehearted belief that you can and will get to where you want to be.
When I was playing football for the Odessa Roughnecks I knew that I wanted to make it to the NFL, but the road to the league wasn’t the best infrastructure available. And honestly, I couldn’t see the end in sight. My relentless mindset lead me to work harder every single day just to be prepared if the opportunity would arise. Three years later, the Miami Dolphins would call, and in 2010 I was a 26 year old rookie catching bombs for the Redskins.
If you want to do big things, then you have to think big!
