This Football Star's Message Will Inspire You
After a stellar college career, Robert Griffin III struggled in his NFL career with the Washington Redskins. After suffering injuries and offering lackluster performances, he was sent to the practice squad, and his job was given to his back up quarterback.
Instead of speaking with reporters after the last game of the season, Griffin left an inspiring message for his teammates in the locker room. It’s a great message for us all.
Here’s the full text:
People are often unreasonable, irrational, & self-centered
FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
BE KIND ANYWAY.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends, and some genuine enemies
If you are honest & sincere, people may deceive you
BE HONEST & SINCERE ANYWAY.
What you spend years creating others could destroy overnight
The good you do today, will often be forgotten
DO GOOD ANYWAY.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY.
In the final analysis, its between you and God.
IT WAS NEVER BETWEEN YOU AND THEM ANYWAY
