Rams wide receiver and kick returner Brandon Powell on ‘Be You’ mantra, investing in real estate, good books

4) I know you also mentioned reading “Attitude is Everything” last year. What prompted you to make this book, and why are books in general important to you?

“I think it’s important to me (because), I never read books when I was little. It’s a saying that they put things in books because they know that people won’t read them, and that’s actually true. Starting to read books, we’re adults now, we’re 27, it’s just trying to be a better person. Attitude is everything. taught me a lot, because for example, football, you come to practice happy and excited every day, you’re going to have a good day. You come here like “I don’t want to be here”, you’re going to have a bad day because you already have that mindset. So just try to have a positive mindset, positive attitude about everything, and it worked well for me.”

5) Are there any other books that you have read recently that you enjoy, whether similar to Attitude is Everything or different?

“Oh, yeah. So I’ve read books about finance, like The Psychology of Money, it’s a great book. But right now I’m reading a book called A New Earth. It will teach you about your ego, like how everyone has an ego everyone wants to be that perfect person but we are human we are not perfect so this is just a book that teaches me how to control your ego we all are all equal, so just respect people and just try to get better every day.”

6) What did it mean to be able to return to the Rams this year after the aforementioned certainty you faced last year?

“It was refreshing for me. I had a whole offseason to relax, man, because we did it earlier, before OTAs and stuff, so it was good to focus. An offseason where I I didn’t have to travel and find a new team, it was just, I knew I was coming back to LA. So that was good. It helped prepare me for this year.”
