The Privilege of Pressure

“Pressure is a privilege.” – Larry Fitzgerald

I have two things to say about this quote:

1) I have a list of people I want to meet and Larry Fitzgerald is on it. I saw him interviewed on a Sunday pre-game program one time and was very impressed by his philosophy, hard work and desire to get better and better.

2) I think Larry is talking about how the chance to compete is a wonderful opportunity and “pressure,” in whatever form it takes, is a catalyst for improvement (and something to be grateful for).

Pressure means that what we’re doing matters, at least to us. When we feel pressure, we’re alive and aware and in-the-moment.

If we didn’t feel pressure, we probably wouldn’t be doing anything worthy of our gifts and talents.
