It Takes Passion
We have all one way or another heard of the legendary LeBron James, who is one of the greatest basketball players of our time. This is a man that was raised in the Cleveland projects, where only the very poor live, and Only the Strong Survive. This six-foot-nine NBA superstar has won four most valuable player Awards, his endorsement deals alone are worth 35.7 million dollars annually, which has made him one of the most wealthy athletes on this planet.
Last year this Legend open up in Akron Ohio a school for at-risk kids, he was once asked in an interview what advice could he give teenagers, his answer was I don't want advice, and the reason I don't want advice is because every experience is a major teacher. All the experience that I have gained along the way since I became known at 15, all the way to my age now, even with some of the bumps and the bruises the Bad and the good, I'd learn how to deal with them because I experienced them.
Yes I could give them the blueprint but at the end of the day they are going to have to travel their own Road. The odds were completely against him being who he is today, when you take in consideration where he came from, what led him to the top of the mountain in basketball was his passion. His passion for the game, his passion to be successful, his passion to change the history of his family and the passion to help those who are in the position that he was in as a child.
It is our passion for what we do that will hold us by the hand, and lead us to the top of the mountain of success. Yes we have our dreams and yes we have our goals, and yes we want to be successful in these dreams and goals however, we must have passion and feel this passion each and every day in what we are doing. Believing with all of our heart Mind and Spirit, that we will succeed, and using that passion to fire us up each and every morning when we open our eyes.
