This Almost Never Happened

Discussing with Michael Jordan

Do you know that this almost never happened?

Do you know that I almost quit before I began?

Do you know that I have the same haunting voice that you have, telling me that I’m not good enough?

Telling me that my dreams aren’t important enough.

Telling me every single reason why my dreams will never come true.

Do you know that this almost never happened?

Do you know that I almost let that voice win?

I am no different than you.

Not more special, not more inclined.

Please don’t be satisfied with just being happy with every step of my success.

That’s not what this is about.

There was almost no me versus Michael Jordan.

But there is and the game will be.

It’s changed my life.

Changed it in ways that far outstretch the limits of a basketball court.

What could your dreams do for you, if you allowed them to live?

Do you know that this almost never happened?

me vs. Michael Jordan…the dream is alive!

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!

Words can’t express how excited I am for you. The challenges you faced and the hurdles you overcame. You have been a life changer to so many. Thank you for bringing us along on your journey. I think we all have learned something new about ourselves as well. You ROCK! Thank you for being you!

Thank you! 😀 Thank you for your friendship, kind words and for always taking the time to give some encouragement to me. Means so much!

ps: I haven’t forgotten about your shirt! Still in the process of getting them made. First one goes out to you!
