A couple of weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to share the FAZE story and hopefully provide some inspiration for the young men of the Mission High School Varsity Football Team. My talked involved aspects of my personal story as well as the story of our brand. The main thing I wanted to get across with the team is that visualization is key! We have to develop a strong visual of a favorable outcome/goal and then work hard to experience that visualization in real life. Sometimes our visualizations don't come to fruition but that's life. However, other times they do. When I was a junior in high school, I visualized having my own clothing brand. I didn't get to create my brand at that time but years later we were able to start FAZE. Stories like this (and others) is what I wanted to share with the team that day.
The Mission Bears had been preparing and working hard all year for a chance to be crowned AAA champions at the Turkey Bowl, which was taking place the day after this prep talk. Unfortunately, they were unable to secure the victory at this year's game but I'm certain they will be back even stronger next year. Setbacks are necessary in life because they prepare us for difficult situations in the future and ultimately allow us to power through those situations when faced with them again. You had a great season fellas and no one can take that from you!
We're blessed to be given these opportunities to speak to the youth in our community. Giving back and providing some inspiration is the FAZE way. If our story can spark something within the youth to go out and do great things, then our job is done. Thank you Coach G for giving us this opportunity!
