Every setback has a major comeback.— Russell Wilson
The most skyrocket Russell Wilson quotes that are easy to memorize and remember
I truly believe in positive synergy, that your positive mindset gives you a more hopeful outlook, and belief that you can do something great means you will do something great.
Every day I wake up and that’s my goal, to be on a constant quest for knowledge and do something different, being unique and being uncommon.
My height doesn't define my skill set.
To be a great quarterback, you have to have great leadership, great attention to detail and a relentless competitive nature - and I try to bring that on a daily basis.
I'm here today because God has brought me here.
Jesus has brought me here...I'm with an amazing team. I believe He perfectly placed me in the right spot at the right time.
I remember my dad asking me one time, and it's something that has always stuck with me: 'Why not you, Russ?' You know, why not me? Why not me in the Super Bowl? So in speaking to our football team earlier in the year, I said, 'Why not us? Why can't we be there?'
Every game's a championship game. When we focus that way, get prepared that way-that this is it, you know, this is the last one, the biggest one-you get ready, you get amped up, you get that laser focus and you're ready to play.
I had a dream that my dad passed away and that Jesus came into the room and he was basically knocking on my door, saying, 'Hey, you need to find out more about me.' So that Sunday morning I ended up going to church, and that's when I got saved.
When we are at the worst times of our lives, when we are battling with something, or struggles, whatever it may be, when we are at our highest point as well, when things are going really well, we want somebody to comfort us and be there for us and to say, 'Well done.' That's Jesus!
I’ll write down little lines, I always say, 'K.
T.N.,' and I say that to my receivers and running backs and that means 'keep taking notes.' That keeps me alert. That keeps me going. That keeps my drive there, even when you’re taking notes on something that you’ve already taken notes on a million times - keep taking notes.
There's some *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys on my iPod. I listen to it if it comes up on shuffle.
I ended up getting drafted by the Colorado Rockies on June 8, 2010 and the next day, my dad passed away, in June 9, 2010. So I'm at the biggest high of my life on June 8th. And the next day, June 9th, he's gone.
When I first came into the NFL, I was just trying to be super, super ready to learn the plays and all that. Now, I've found more balance. I think that with new life coming in, and family and everything else, balance has been critical. That goes for the social media part, too - allowing the fans to come into our world a little is cool.
I've tried to do everything possible to prepare myself and prepare our football team to be great.
My thing is, and I've always been this way - to get to know as many people as I possibly can on a personal level, so that way, when you get on the football field, you've got your buddy right beside you, and you're ready to go.
For me, I'm able to use my gift to glorify God. That's what it's about for me.
I believed that I could go to the Super Bowl and win multiple Super Bowls and do all of those things. I believe in that every day.
I'm a big pasta guy, but I've cut it out to stay fast and lean.
We'll do whatever it takes to score as many points as we can-and definitely one more point than the opponent.
You know, I want to be the uncommon one.
I think it's pretty cool that I'm only 5'11, you know, and playing in the National Football League.
In elementary and middle school, I threw kids against the wall.
I rubbed their heads in the dirt at recess. I bit them. I even knocked teeth out.
So that Sunday morning I ended up going to church and that’s when I got saved.
Since I was in high school, I wanted to play professional football and professional baseball, be a two-sport star.
I have high expectations of myself. I always have, always will. That will never waver. I always believe in my talent - always have.
I took a huge risk leaving baseball, because I was predicted to play in the big leagues. I'm kind of a prototypical second baseman.
Ken Griffey changed the game, but he also represented pop culture and the youth - how he wore his hat backwards, how he swung the bat and walked off...he brought energy to the game, class to the game. He was kind of the first person I really watched. He was a big influence.
I'm more of an oldies guy. I'll say this - Michael Jackson, best entertainer of all time. Luther Vandross, best male singer of all time. Whitney Houston, best female singer of all time...and when Teddy Pendergrass says turn off the lights, turn 'em off. That's what I got for you.
Honestly, being a 5'11 quarterback, not too many people think that you can play in the National Football League. And so for me, you know, I knew that my height doesn't define my skill set, you know? I believed in my talent. I believed in what God gave me. I believed in the knowledge that I have of the game.
There's a king in every crowd.
Being a quarterback, the way I believe is there's always so much room to improve. Any little detail. I always cut up the film and try to watch what I can improve on, whatever little detail it is.
Always persevere, always have a great perspective, and always have great purpose in your life
I don't think I've arrived. I think I'm continuing to get there, getting closer and closer to where I want to go. But I'm not there yet.
Live with a purpose, play with a purpose.
In the midst of chaos, you've gotta be able to slow it down.
That's one of the things that God's gifted me with, it's one of the things that I've trained for, and train for now.
In terms of professionally what I want to do, I want to play 15-plus more years, get to the Hall of Fame, and win a lot of championships and all that. I'd love to be the owner of a team one day. But it's way bigger than that. For me, my vision is how can I affect somebody positively every day? When you focus on other people, somehow good things happen to you. I think that's my goal. That's my vision.
My faith is so strong that I believe that God made me 5-11 for a reason.
For all the kids that have been told, no, that they can't do it, or all the kids that will be told no.
The only person I can change is the one in the mirror.
Separation comes from preparation.
I've been training like crazy with my trainer Decker Davis all the time, and we've been doing this new thing called Danger Train. It's kind of storytelling about the offseason training, there's a lot more to come with that. More than anything, from a nutrition aspect to the speed aspect to the strengthening aspect and, most importantly, to the mental aspect, we're always trying to grow exponentially. We're continuing to find new ways to do that.
God is good all the time. Every time.

I know the coaches definitely trust me and my ability to throw the football.
I've been through a lot in life, and had some ups and downs. It's what's led me to this day.
I had this urge to play the game of football because so many people said I couldn't do it.
With my dad passing away, he's always watching me-a big smile on his face, watching every snap on the 50-yard line.
No one can stop what God has for you.
Well you always want to play against the best.
That's what you're going to get in the Super Bowl. To go against guys like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady who I have tons of respect for; I watch their games, I study their games, I try to learn from them. It gets you excited, but hopefully not too excited. Just focus on the game. Then when my career is done then I can look back at it.
We were 6-4 and everybody doubted us.
We lost to the Kansas City Chiefs and that week we had a players meeting and really talked about where we really want to go. It's not about the record. At the end of the day it comes down to are we going to keep focusing on each other and are we going to keep getting better day by day? We ignored the noise, we ignored all the talk from the outside.
