You need some motivation to get what you want in life?  Then I suggest you do what St. Louis Rams rookie defensive end did to land his new job.  Put a tattoo on your face!  Yes, the St. Louis Rams newest member, Ethan Westbrooks, has a tatoo below his left eye and above his cheek, ala Mike Tyson.  What was his reasoning?

‘I was just like I might as well go ahead and get it on the face because if nothing else, it will help motivate me to either be a guy that has a tattoo on his face looking for another job or hopefully I make it in the NFL and don’t have to work too hard to do something (else),’ Westbrooks said. ‘I don’t feel it’s a bad thing now. I don’t regret it. It speaks for itself.’

The tattoo has a message on it reading “Laugh now, Cry later” with a picture of a happy and sad face, bad boy sticks out like a sore thumb!  I wonder how many job interviews has he had since the tattoo?  Before making the Rams 53 man roster, Mr. Westbrooks was employed by Toys “R” Us in Sacramento while playing football at Sacramento City Junior College.  After JUCO, Westbrooks then attended West Texas A&M where he went undrafted.  

The trivia one day will be who did Ethan Westbrooks beat out to land final roster spot on the St. Louis Rams?  That would be Michael Sam.
