Carson Wentz Quotes

Carson James Wentz

Carson Wentz quotes: how the QB approaches football and life in general.

“I view every day just as an opportunity.”

“I’m a very motivated person. I don’t need extra motivation.”

“All men are wired to be in control of what’s going on in their life.”

“You’re not always going to come out on top.”

“There are going to be mistakes.”

“Nobody likes failing. You don’t grow up saying, ‘I can’t wait to fail.’ But I think, through athletics, I’ve learned that it’s okay. It’s okay and, quite frankly, your successes and your victories, you appreciate them so much more when you have failed. You learn a lot about yourself and your character when you fail, whether that’s hunting, whether that’s football, whether that’s life in general. You’ve got to be willing to make mistakes and be honest and say, ‘Hey, I screwed up. I messed that one up. But I’m going to get it the next time.’ It’s okay to fail.”

“As a competitor, I’ve thrown plenty of picks in my life, since I was a kid. You learn that if you dwell on it, if you sit on it, if you let it stay in your mind, you’re just going to be worse. You’ve got to go out with the same attack mentality and confidence in yourself that you’re going to get it done. That’s how I’ve been wired, and that’s the approach I have to take in football and in everything.”

“It doesn’t matter if you’re winning or losing. You’ve got to be the same guy; you’ve got to prepare the same.”

“You just control what you can control.”

“A lot of guys have tons of talent, but it boils down to the mental side of things. Preparing and knowing… being able to read and react quickly. The mental side is often overlooked.”

“I’m not an idiot; I can make adjustments to my life. But I like having a schedule.”

“It’s how I’m wired. If I’m not the best at something, it ticks me off, and I want to work harder to be the best. It’s also the way I was raised. I’m going to go out and attack it and get better every day. That’s the same approach I’ve had since I was just a little kid.”

“I wouldn’t be here without the work ethic that was instilled in me as a kid. I wouldn’t be in this position. Believe me, I’ve been gifted. God’s blessed me with an ability to throw the football, but without the work ethic, I would not be here. And I think it is sad sometimes to see the younger generations and the social media, the cellphones, the technology and how that kind of takes away from work ethic and people really trying to pursue their dreams sometimes and coming up short because they lack that work ethic.”

“I learned a lot about myself. I learned a lot about knowing that not everything is in your control, and ultimately, I think it’s going to make me stronger going forward.”

“You have to earn respect. You have to put in the hard work. You’ve got to have the ‘first one in and the last one out’ type of mentality. Obviously, the best way to earn that respect is to do well. Go out and compete and succeed.”

“Timing and accuracy is really what matters at the end of the day.”

“From the third grade, I knew that I wanted to play in the NFL. It’s pretty cool to see the dream about to come to fruition, but it’s just a starting point.”

“I remember just praying, ‘Dear Lord, please let me grow to be at least six feet.'”

“Young quarterbacks usually experience bumps in the road. I’ll take them in stride.”

“As a competitor, you want to get on the field as soon as you can. But you want to do best for your team, your career and everything. That’s not up to me to decide.”

“I enjoy creating relationships with my teammates, my friends, and I genuinely care about people.”

“You just control what you can control and just hopefully go win games and keep getting better.”

“I know what I’m capable of. I know I can play better. I have never doubted myself or lost my confidence in my abilities.”

“I’m just going to compete my tail off and hopefully win a lot of games.”

“I think leadership is just something that comes really natural to me. I hold myself to a high standard. I’m a competitive son of a gun. I don’t like losing. I want to be the best out there. I want to lead the troops. I want to kind of take the bull by the horns and be in control.”

“I feel like I’ve earned respect with how I go about my business, how I carry myself.”

“I’m going to put a lot of expectations on myself.”

“I hate losing, and I’m gonna do whatever it takes to be the best at whatever it is I’m doing. All I care about is winning.”

“I’m one that doesn’t let the pressure or any of the outside kind of scrutiny, all those things, really get to me.”

“Music is really essential to me, and I feel I always need music when I’m training and when I’m in the gym working out. Having that music was really a motivating factor for me. Music plays a big part in my life and in my training in the offseason.”

“I think the biggest thing I learned about myself was life isn’t all about stuff.”

“Football is my job, and I take it very seriously. When I’m at work, I’m here at the facility, I’m locked in. I’m all in on football. Maybe a meeting will end, and my brother will send me a trail camera picture or something. ‘Hey, the deer we’ve been targeting, he was out last night.’ That’s good to get your mind off football here and there.”

“I’m unapologetic about my upbringing, my lifestyle, my culture, and my love of being a hunter, fisher, gatherer. My lifestyle is just being authentic, being authentic to who I am. My faith is number one in my life, and obviously football is my job and I love it and my family. But hunting is a serious passion of mine. For me, it’s just about being myself, being authentic, and not letting what the world says or maybe the naysayers—sometimes people don’t want to hear about hunting and what goes into that. But for me, if I’m not talking about it, I’m not being me. So it’s something I enjoy, something I’m passionate about, and I’ll never apologize for being passionate about it.”

“Stay in it, keep believing and keep fighting, and pull it out.”
