The Key to Your Success …

Headstrong: The Documentary

“Seattle’s 5-foot-11 franchise quarterback faced several challenges as a kid. He was told he was too short to ever be an athlete of any significance. There was never a shortage of people telling him no.

He established an appreciation for creating a positive mindset at a young age. “I think the mind is everything,” Wilson said. “My parents used to talk to me about how we think and how we talk and the power of language is everything. Really it’s the core of what mental health is.”

Wilson’s parents encouraged him to have an imagination and believe in himself. They taught him that speaking things into existence would allow him to be successful and make the most out of his potential.

“I’m thankful for my parents giving me a vision – for giving me positive language and giving me language of life and not negativity,” Wilson said.

Wilson is famous for his optimism, and that outlook is contagious throughout the Seahawks roster. Every word out of his mouth during a game – no matter if the Seahawks are up by seven or down by 20 – is positive. It’s part of the reason why Seattle has become notorious for late-game comebacks with Wilson at the helm.

“You don’t have to be sick to get better,” Wilson said. “No matter how successful you are or what status you are – a top quarterback or if you’re trying to overcome cancer – the best thing that we can do is have positive language.”

Neutral language is also just as important as having a positive mindset. The Idea of neutrality means to have the ability to assess your situation – good or bad – without letting it impact you positively or negatively. That allows you to best understand the necessary course of action without being influenced by emotion.
