Aaron Rodgers Quotes

Aaron Charles Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers quotes: the Green Bay God’s philosophies on football, health, fame, pressure, critics, leadership and more.

“I think it is all about finding ways to challenge yourself.”

“The guys who stick around are the smartest guys and the guys who are the most self-driven.  You have to have drive.  The coaches can only take you so far.  You have to want to learn and work.”

“I think you can train yourself to block out some of that pressure and replace it with confidence.  It’s about preparation, and the more prepared I am, the less pressure I feel and the more confident I am.  As your confidence grows, it’s only natural that the pressure you feel diminishes.”

“When you really start figuring things out… you realize you don’t have to be perfect every time.”

“You play it the way you always play it.  You look for matchups, and you go through your progression.”

“Surround yourself with really good people.  Because the people you surround yourself with are a reflection of you.  I think that’s an important thing.”

“I’ve always been supremely confident in my abilities.  But the biggest confidence boost is when the guys around you, you feel like they have confidence in you.”

“Leadership can’t be forced or contrived.  It has to be your personality.  I look for my opportunities, not trying to go outside of my genuine realm, because leadership has to be genuine and authentic.”

“When you have success on the field, you’re more popular and you have that fame that comes with it.  You realize you’re in the public eye more and you’ve got to be a little bit more careful about some of the things you’re doing out in public and make sure you’re smart about the things you say.  You’re still going to make mistakes from time to time, but you represent an even greater population and people are that much more looking for you to be in the wrong place at the wrong time or fall down or say something really stupid that’s going to get you in trouble.”

“I think very highly of myself.  I think I’m capable of a lot of things on the field.”

“Authenticity is everything!  You have to wake up every day and look in the mirror and you want to be proud of the person who’s looking back at you.  And you can only do that if you’re being honest with yourself and being a person of high character.  You have an opportunity every single day to write that story of your life.”

“If I can slow it down in my mind, things will be fine.”

“The challenge to be the best is what drives me and to just improve my body every day.”

“I feel like I’ve set the bar fairly high, and I want to keep living up to that bar.  I know I’m capable of greatness, and I’m expecting to reach that level.”

“I lead by example.”

“Performing at my best is important to me and should be to everyone.  I am blessed that my dad is a chiropractor.  Getting adjusted regularly – along with practicing other good health habits that my mom helped me to establish – are all part of my goal to win in life and on the field.”

“The pressure I put on myself is the only pressure I’m feeling once I get into the game.  I’ve always seemed to have my best performances when I’m under the most pressure.”

“It takes a career, a lifetime, to build up a reputation, and only one misstep for it all to crumble away.”

“I think being recognized more is something you have to get used to, whether it’s your homeland or when you’re traveling.  People recognize me from my play or a commercial I’ve done.  It’s just a normal part of life.”

“I think as you get older, you realize there’s always going to be critics.  Critics are going to win every time because they can change their critique based on the stats and their own personal feelings.  It’s less about proving people wrong, the critics wrong, and it’s more about challenging myself to keep this level up.”

“I think you have to approach every interview with a clear mind and think about what you want to say and what message you want to get out.”

“When you tell the truth, it’s always easy to have your story straight.  You don’t need to use unnamed sources or try to plant stories or anything weird like that.  I just answer questions as honestly and as appropriately as possible, and I’m not holding onto anything that I feel needs to be said.  When you’re consistent, you don’t have to try hard to let your personality show.”

“Yeah, I want to be liked, obviously.  Everybody does.”

“Everybody eats a little differently, but the more you are aware of what you put in your body and how it affects your performance, the better opportunities you have.  And that’s what I’m trying to do.”

“I’ve got the 30 drive right now.  You turn 30, I don’t know, life is exciting again; 30s is when you’ve got it all figured out.  You start reaching some of your goals, and achieving some great things.”

“I’ve gotten to learn what’s important in life and what’s not important, and what to spend energy on and what not to.  I don’t have a family like some of my teammates, but I have a lot of things pulling at me that I have to put my energy into.”

“When I’m done playing, I’m going to have hopefully many, many, many decades of life left, and I’m going to keep doing the things that I enjoy now but have more time for them: traveling, philanthropic trips, supporting incredible organizations, seeing the world with people I love, spending time with the people who are important to me, continuing to do the business stuff.  Quality of life is so important while I’m playing and for post-career as well.  I’m trying to figure out what that looks like within my career.”

“I’ve gotten to know a lot of great people here in all the different sports.  It’s fun.  It’s fun to get involved where you live.”

“When you’re doing something for somebody with no expectation, not getting anything out of it except seeing joy on that person’s face, it’s different.  Just zero expectation of any type of receiving.  And in those moments, you actually receive so much because the joy is overflowing in that person.  It’s contagious – the hugs, the high-fives, the smiles.”

“I think it’s especially important for someone like myself who grew up in the Christian culture where there isn’t a lot of open-mindedness to learn about other people’s ideas and beliefs.  And doing that can actually strengthen your own faith, whatever that is.  Because at a certain point, even when you’re taught something at a young age, you have to embrace what you believe.”

“Having sensitivity in our culture is often looked at as a negative.  But sensitivity is just having an empathy for people at times.  And it means you take things to heart a little more because you’re a deep thinker and because you care about other people.”

“When you learn about projection in psychology, you learn that the things people say about you say more about them than about you.  It’s others’ projections onto you.  And you don’t have to accept it, acknowledge it or take it on.  When you have indifference to that, it takes the power away from those statements and really just bounces them back to that person.  It’s like holding onto bitterness or jealousy about someone.  It does nothing to that person; it just eats you up.”

“Just live life and don’t worry about the other stuff.  It’s pretty freeing actually.”

“As a man of faith, God doesn’t bring you to things that you can’t get through.  He doesn’t put you in a spot and then leave you out to dry.”

“The Lord is my rock.  He has always been there, always present at good times and bad; and to me when I feel His presence, my life is full.”

“Relax.  I’m still getting paid millions of dollars.”

“I’ve been waiting for this opportunity my whole life.  I’m fulfilling my dreams that I had as a kid every single day.  That’s why I’m trying to enjoy it so much.”

“Aaron Rodgers, starting quarterback – that just has a good ring to it.”
