If you feel like you’re just average in school, you’re probably looking for ways to step up your game.

Today’s video uses lessons from NFL star Deshaun Watson to help you achieve success.

  • “Somebody had to be great. Why not me?”
  • The first step in getting to greatness is to STOP blocking yourself from it! Don’t stand in your own way. Everyone has seemingly insurmountable circumstances, but only those who are willing to WORK and move past those obstacles are going to succeed.
  • It’s easy to complain about having to work harder than others, but complaining doesn’t help anyone. Just buckle down and make it happen.
  • “The road to greatness is paved with adversity, failure, and setbacks.”
  • Deshaun Watson had to overcome so many injuries and obstacles, but he worked past them and strengthened himself to become the NFL legend he is today.
  • Don’t be scared of failure! It happens to every single one of us. But to achieve college success and success in life, you have to learn from your mistakes and do better next time.
  • Greatness takes time. There’s no shortcut or magic trick to achieving your dreams. Figure out what works for you, no matter how long it takes, and then stick with it!
  • It’s easy to be swayed by what’s happened in the past. Don’t let your past failures stop you from being ready when it’s time to be great.
  • Be persistent and have confidence in yourself to make your dreams happen. Work your hardest and move past your failures to achieve the greatness you know you’re capable of!
  • Ask yourself if you’re truly engaged in what you’re doing or if you’re going through the motions. You have to light a fire within yourself to push through the hard times.
  • Never think that it’s too late for your goals. No matter where you are in life, you can always get back on the right track.
  • Everyone has greatness inside them, but not everyone will achieve it. The difference is being willing to put the work in.
