Life lessons with Texas A&M legend Johnny ‘Football’ Manziel

Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was very active on X, formerly known as Twitter, this past weekend.

After proclaiming his self-removal from the Heisman Trophy ceremony in support of Reggie Bush, Manziel continued to speak his mind on social media.

“Failure in life has been one of the biggest motivators for me,” Manziel stated. “Fear is truly one of the biggest things that allow us to change.

“Just because you held yourself to a lower standard in the past doesn’t mean you have to continue that trajectory for the rest of your life.

“Create the life that you want to live and own that s***.”

Manziel shared his desire to better himself.

“Morals and values are something that every single Aggie is engrained with from the second that you step on campus,” he stated. “I chose not to accept that fact until recently but moving forward I will hold myself to a higher standard that will go over a lot of y’all’s heads.

“Time to get 1% better today.”

Also noteworthy: Johnny hasn’t formally retired from professional football.

“Another little tidbit,” Manziel teased. “You’re not truly considered an NFL ‘bust’ until you officially retire. Do with that as you wish.”
