An Incredible Example of Grit, Perseverance, and Growth Mindset - Motivation Monday #23 {June 9, 2014}

Every Monday I post quotes and/or videos to inspire and motivate you through your week. Get ready for a great one!

With the odds stacked against L'Damian Washington, he shows us what it means to persevere and never give up. Losing his father at age 5 and his mother when he was a sophomore in high school, he and his 3 brothers chose to stay together and raise themselves and each other. L'Damian went on to Mizzou to play football and graduated with a 3.5 GPA.

He does not only want to succeed for himself, he wants to succeed for others.
                              -Andy Hill, Missouri Associate Head Coach

*As of last Monday, June 2, L'Damian faced another setback - he injured his shoulder and is out for the rest of the offseason. Dallas Morning News blog post here. 

You can follow L'Damian on Twitter for more inspiration and to follow his journey.

Have a super week,
