People never believe me.
The world is an ironic place.
Success is for yourself, not any one else.
Of all the emotions that drive me, anger would be my personal chauffeur.
Our basketball practice was canceled today.
But when you have the will, you have the way.
What kind of person will you be? What kind of legacy will you leave?
What gift will you pass on to those you love, when you one day, you too must move on?
Challenge yourself to 21 days of absolute hard work, and see where you end up….
“Life is…unpredictable. It can be great, but it can be bad.
Live everyday as if its your last, you’ll never know when you’ll come to pass.”
One day, in Eighth Grade, this big, burly white kid came to our court to play basketball with my group of friends and me.
He dominated us; he had us outskilled, outsized, and outmatched; obviously only playing with us to destroy us.
I hated him.
And that’s how I met my best friend.
My world view has always been that hard work is the epitome of human success, if you read my blog and don’t know that, where have you been to be honest?, but its interesting to see that hard work and self discipline are actually limited within the human body and mind.
I love to learn stuff like this, I like to know why I can train for basketball for hours on end, but I can’t even do chores.
I find this to be revealing to the fact that we’re all only human, and no matter how much your will can push you, there’s a limit. But always pushing yourself to that limit is what it means to work hard and strive.
