Johnny Manziel “Johnny Football” “Celebrity”
What does Johnny Manziel have to do with me, my blog, my life, or anyone’s life!! A lot, you see people respond as they are treated. If we are treated with respect we in turn act respectful. If we are treated as responsible people, we in turn act responsible, deliver responsible behavior. Johnny Manziel displayed a very talented college career with Texas A&M and seemed likely that he would move that success to the NFL. He also displayed a life off the field filled with fun. Reminds me of Joe Namath, aka’ Broadway Joe’ with the New York Jets whose life off the field was also filled with fun and reported in the newspapers and tabloids. But their lies the only similarities.
For some reason the Cleveland Brown’s drafted Johnny Manziel with what seemed to be was to change his life off the field, not necessarily tap and develop his talent and leadership. And often people around us and our boss at work try to make us something we aren’t and treat us in a way that suffocates our talent and we begin to respond in the way we are treated and begin to fulfill the desired image. Make us someone more manageable to their weaknesses. To their weaknesses? Yes, they may be a bit intimidated by you and your talent, so they seek out a way to manipulate. It’s the only way they can associate with us, other than that they would show themselves weak and they can’t have that.
So, this coach and owner of the Cleveland Brown’s immediately go after Johnny Manziel’s off field life, not once do they figure…..this guys talented enough to turn this franchise around. All we have to do is develop Johnny’s talent and focus on winning. I recently read where Johnny said he felt unwanted. The coach and the owner didn’t want him. The General Manager is the guy who does the drafting.
Johnny Manziel spirals downward over 2 years, the Cleveland Brown’s maintain their loosing edge, Johnny puts in a stint in rehab, ups and downs ensue, he’s cut from the team, the General Manager and the coach are fired.
Does Johnny have a problem? Yes, he does. One that was grown and nurtured by a few idiots. Is Johnny Manziel better or worse off after 2 years,……he’s worse. He’s only 23 years old, not a lost cause, his life can be turned around. Right people, right treatment.
This is all of us. Surround us with the right people and the right treatment and we will blossom! We will.
Treat people like winners and you’ll find you have winners as friends, find people that will treat you as a winner, you’ll find the winner within.
Peace, Love, and Beaches,
