Do You Really, Really Want It?

Too many people had become victims and witnesses of this simple truth. The one truth we were afraid to acknowledge. Afraid that it would tell us who we really were.

“If you really want it, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.”

Once there was a boy who loved the game probably more than anyone. But he was always told that he was too short to be anywhere on the court. So he worked out when no one else was on the court. And he worked out really hard like his life depended on it. And one day he got a shot. Literally and figuratively. And guess what we know of him today?

“By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time.”

– I didn’t say it. His biography on the official NBA website did.

What’s holding you back today? What’s your excuse?
