What Inspires You Every day? : Football is what inspires me because Sometimes being good just isn’t good enough. You can be talented at football and have that natural ability but if you don’t care and you have no motivation or heart you’ll never amount to anything in life. Football inspires me to have discipline. When you play football you have to work out every day to maintain your athleticism. That also means you have to watch what you eat and drink and you’re accountable for your mistakes because if you screw up that could be the difference from making into the NFL and not playing anymore In real life it’s much the same. You have to stay disciplined with your exercise and diet or you’ll become unhealthy. When you mess up at home or at work, you’re accountable for it. If you don’t stay disciplined bad things happen.Football just inspires me to do the best I can.
