"There's no other way to live than to think positive." - Marshawn Lynch
Marshawn Lynch is a true character and unequivocally true to himself. Known for his incredible "beast mode" run, he has made "Beast Mode" a way of life outside football and in giving back to his hometown community of Oakland, California. Few successful athletes who come from an underprivileged neighborhood make a point to come back and actually live in the same neighborhood like Marshawn has.
Marshawn is a staple in his Oakland community, often showing up unannounced in classrooms to check on kids, expanding the life vision of Oakland youth through his foundation, and sharing his "Beast Mode" approach to life through his statement apparel and production company projects.
MARSHAWN'S WORDS OF WISDOM
Marshawn's words of wisdom boil down to a simple "AWOL", what he calls "A Way of Life":
"There's no other way to live than to think positive."
"Enjoy what it is you enjoy and do more of that."
"There's 'want-to's' and 'want-not's'. If you want to, then you're going to do it, if you don't want to, then you're not."
"There's not one definition of success."
"If you can't find something to smile about, you're wasting your time."
MARSHAWN'S CHARITABLE WORK + PROJECTS
Marshawn's foundation has the mission of mentoring kids in northern California on the importance of education, literacy, and self-esteem through empowering workshops, programs, and through bridging athletics and education.
