Ray Lewis inspirational speech

I needed this video below, badly.

I got two friends in tough circumstances. I got more burdens on me than I feel like even dealing with — you know what it’s like when you have so many things to do that they just overwhelm you and you usually fail to even do one of them…

And I was feeling tired and lethargic and soft and stuck and lame — like this really lame sentence.

I watched the video below about thirty minutes ago and I’ve been attacking the push ups, the pull up bar, and the heavy bag ever since.

It’s easy to mock motivational videos. It’s even easier to say your situation will never change. But we can all affect our destiny at any given moment. No, we can’t all become Michael Jordan or Ray Lewis. But we can all reach for that extra ten percent. For that extra inch right in front of our face.

Do it for your family. Do it for friends. Do it for yourself.

Keep the faith, my fellow members of Mitchell’s Militia,

Stan R. Mitchell

 If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after finding himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. Stan – If that doesn’t get your motor moving, nothing will. Need to share that with my grandsons. Great wisdom and really well said.
