How Inky Johnson Found Motivation After Life Altering Incident

Usually in our Monday Motivation article, the team here at NexGoal writes an in-depth piece breaking down some aspect of the workplace and how you can utilize it to find motivation and take your career to the next level. These posts have been great, however, our inspiration comes from another source this week.

While scrolling through Twitter over the weekend, the below video was retweeted into my timeline. It was the story of how former Tennessee Volunteer standout defensive back, Inky Johnson, was on a hopeful path to the NFL—but one hit would change all of that and alter his life in a way he never expected.

Writing the story out does not do his story justice, so you should take the time to watch Johnson tell it in the video below. But as you are watching, I would like to drive home a few key points from Johnson’s story that can apply to your own life.

• No matter how big of a life-blow you are dealt, you have the power to come back from it.
• If a work task seems too challenging at first, take a step back and a deep breath and look at where you can start to accomplish it. Johnson did not get to where he is now overnight.
• At any point if you do not like your current situation, you have the power to change it with hard work and dedication.

We hope you enjoy this video and Johnson’s story. If you would like to share your own motivational story or form of inspiration in your life, email us here.
