They say it will never happen.
They shake their heads and quietly chuckle.
They try to introduce doubt.
They pour their pessimism all over me and expect me to wilt.
They question my motives.
They call themselves my friends.
They don’t know how badly I want this.
They didn’t see the tears or hear me as I cried alone in my car 16 months ago, because I didn’t want to leave.
They didn’t feel the pain or the push as I went through rebuilding my leg.
They haven’t seen the countless emails and tweets I’ve written or the calls I’ve made.
They haven’t seen the thousands of makes, when I’m alone in the gym.
They don’t know what it’s like to feel the pain of a “no” from those that have the ability to help…or what it’s like to keep pressing forward.
They are powerless against my journey and yours.
Maybe these words are for you.
Perhaps you want to be the best player on your team and currently you’re not even close.
Maybe you just want to be happy.
They have controlled you, your entire life, and you’ve let them.
It’s time to stop listening to them.
It’s time to listen to yourself.
Only you know how badly you want it.
Now show the rest of the World.
If you work hard enough, one day THEY will tell you that they always knew you could do it.
If you’re new to the site, I set out in August 2010 to get a game of 1-on-1 vs. my childhood hero Michael Jordan. This site is about that journey…through every valley, to every mountain top of triumph!
