Robert Griffin, III (“RG3”), NFL quarterback, joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast with John Brenkus.
RG3 won the Heisman Trophy with Baylor University and stormed onto the NFL scene in 2012 when he was drafted second overall by the Washington Redskins. He took the Redskins to the playoffs and was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. To say RG3 owned Washington, D.C. is an understatement. But things didn’t go quite as planned and he was plagued with injury after injury. He moved on to the Cleveland Browns for a stint in 2016, sat out the 2017 season, and recently signed with the Baltimore Ravens.
In his early years, RG3 experienced incredible success and really being the face of the league to then the unpredictability that follows injury. The setbacks he experienced could have forced anyone off course permanently, yet he’s found his way back to the NFL through deep faith, persistence, and perseverance.
In this conversation, he pulls back the curtain on how he got through the dark times. He also shares his most powerful childhood lesson that helped shape how he approaches every obstacle! RG3’s mindset will remind you that we all have control over how we react to our circumstances and that the good stuff already exists inside of us.
RG3'S WORDS OF WISDOM
"I want to continue to believe in a higher power, believe in the positive, and know that as long as I don’t quit, God has something great planned for me."
"If you don’t believe in something, you’ll fall for anything."
"When you’re in that dark place and you feel like there are no windows or sight of life, you have to decide within yourself you want and how you’re going to get there."
