Quick Motivation: Standard and Why

Stumbled across the above tweet from Baylor Head Coach, Art Briles, not too long ago. It wasn’t so much the main idea of the tweet, but more so the hashtag.

In what seems like an eternity ago, Charles Barkley came under fire for this simple Nike commercial:

Why am I bringing this up? When I read the hashtag in Coach Briles’ tweet (#BeTheStandard), that’s what I thought of – Be your own role model.

Whether discussing sports or business or social media, there is an over-abundance of articles out there telling you how to be or train like someone else. Or, the expert’s stories are your key to being successful.

I don’t know about you, but #BeTheStandard > How to be like (insert role model name here).

Then this tweet from the Washington Redskins’ Robert Griffin III came across my path today.

My thinking on the whole #BeTheStandard has been slightly altered. Can you #BeTheStandard if you don’t #KnowYourWhy yet? Why do you do what you do? 

Then again, maybe the standard and why can both be addressed in one question.


If you’re motivated to be the best YOU you can be, then you’ll discover how to #BeTheStandard and #KnowYourWhy. There may be people you want to be your role models. Let them INSPIRE you to be the best you that you were meant to be.
