Inspiration: Post Defeat Speech x Ray Lewis


Losing is hard not matter the sport and is something that hurts for a long period of time but something that individuals and teams have to move on from. This speech was said by Ray Lewis, a senior member of the Baltimore Ravens,  after his team lost against the Patriots in a final championship in what was a very tight game to the finish. Check the lyrics after the cut…


God has never made a mistake, it ain’t about one play.

This year, we did what we were supposed to do, we fought as a team… There will be one Super Bowl champ crowned at the end of this year, that’s it. So the way we feel, somebody gonna feel like that tomorrow, and somebody gonna feel like that in a week. That’s a fact. And the fact is, we gotta come back and go to work to make sure we finish it next time. That’s all we gotta do.

Joe, you played your (butt) off. You hear me, man? I’m telling you, man, don’t ever — don’t ever — drop your head when it comes to a loss, dog, because there’s too much pain outside of this that people are really going through. This right here makes us stronger. Let’s understand who we are as a team, let’s understand who we are as men, and let’s make somebody smile when we walk out of here. We got the opportunity to keep going, men. Let’s be stronger as a team, men. Let’s be who we are.


Peace Out…
