Former NFL Player Ray Lewis on Success and Staying Grounded
Learn about success and creating greatness from this sports legend.
When people talk about sports legends, they mean the best of the best of the best -- names everyone knows, names that people don’t forget.
I had the privilege of meeting one of these legends a couple months back. From his presence alone, I knew immediately why he had achieved such an incredible level of athletic success.
Ray Lewis is one of the most dominant defensive players in NFL history. He played his entire 17 year career with the Baltimore Ravens including two Super Bowl titles, Super Bowl MVP in 2000 and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year twice.
Oh yeah -- he’s also a NYT bestselling author, father of six and devoted philanthropist.
But I’m just getting started.
The wisdom Ray shared with me during our podcast conversation was deep, grounded, based on results, that I was hanging on every word. Be sure to listen to the last half (we went for a while because it was such a good conversation). Ray goes deep into the role of faith, love and respect in creating greatness.
Ray has not had an easy life. He’s faced pretty much every challenge you can imagine. But his definition of what greatness and being a man really means is spot on.
I can’t wait for you to hear the powerful perspective of this true greatness legend in Episode 415 on The School of Greatness.
