Despite a disappointing end, the Packers quarterback won the NFL MVP award after throwing for 4,299 yards and 48 passing TDs against just 5 interceptions in the regular season.

Aaron Rodgers gets candid during his latest interview after NFL MVP award win

Aaron Rodgers confirmed earlier this year that he was engaged to popular Hollywood actress, Shailene Woodley. The two are expecting a child in the coming months.

In a recent interview with the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the now 3-time NFL MVP spoke about his motivation factor while also talking about the secret behind his consistency in recent years.

He said, “Finding time, without the TV on or the phone, to sit in silence is healing. To be able to quiet your mind and have intentions and focus on the things that are important to you and kind of drown everything away.

“We live in a world where we’re just constantly being distracted and we need stimulation.

“We have to have something inside us that drives us. I think there’s a competitive drive for excellence that every successful person has, and success to me isn’t about money or status.

“Success is about doing your absolute best and being comfortable looking in the mirror, going to sleep at night knowing you did your absolute best. That’s true success,” Rodgers said in the interview.
