Watch J.J. Watt’s Commencement Speech

Here’s some Monday motivation for ya.

NASCAR: Daytona 500 Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

I’m tired. It’s Monday morning. My back hurts. I’m hungover. I hate this place. The weather has been awful...

Lol. Nevermind. All that negativity and pessimism can rot in the crypt with the other cadavers. It’s time to seize the day, conquer the future, live the life you want to live, strangle your enemies, sell everything and go die in the desert, hell yes.

J.J. Watt was back home in Wisconsin this weekend delivering a commencement speech to the melancholy youth, telling them to dream big and work hard, that, no, success is in fact not owned, it’s leased, and rent is due everyday. And as usual, I now want to give everything my all until my tongue turns purple and I die exhausted.

If you need some Monday motivation, or just miss having Watt in your life now that Sundays are for big walks and church and not football, here is Watt’s speech in its entirety.

Let’s go get that bread and make dreams a reality.
