Ray Lewis talks to some lucky kids.

Best motivator of all time. He gives thanks for waking up everyday. What a true inspiration. Some people love him and some people doubt his true intentions. Elizabeth Merrill talks about  how you are people are either on one side of Ray Lewis. I look at him and I see someone that made a mistake when he was young. I see a man that took  a second chance in life to make it everything he can make it. I see a man that made himself what he is today. I see a leader of men, and a constant motivator. The belief he has and commitment he has to his craft is what really motivates me. It’s amazing to see after 17 years of football he is still thankful for being able to suit up and place the game he love. Do we ever set back and look at our lives? Look at the things that are available to us? How lucky we are to be here right NOW?

Last Lecture by Randy Pausch

I always take some time before the end of the year to reflect upon what I did this last year. Check off the things I accomplished and take stock of the things that I did right and wrong so next year can be a better one. I was sifting through old notes and I wrote down on a Post-it – Don’t Bail. I remember quickly transcribing these words as I was watching Randy Pausch’s talk. Among the other points he made that specific one struck a cord inside of me. He was so thankful about life even as he nears the end of his life. I think it’s good to be able to be moved, and be influenced in life. I tell myself that if I’m not growing and changing all the time, then I am are by all means standing still. I find these words moving still as I rewatched parts of it today. If you haven’t seen the talk I would highly recommend it to anyone. Watch for the head fake at the end.
