It doesn’t matter how smart you are or aren’t. You need to make up in hard work what you lack in experience, skill, intelligence, or innate ability. If your competition is smarter, more talented, or experienced, you just need to work three or four time as hard. You can still beat them. Miss free throws at the game? Do one thousand free throws every day for a month. Not good at dribbling with your left hand? Tie your right hand behind your back and dribble three hours a day. Behind in your mouth? Hunker down, hire a tutor, and work like hell all summer until you get it. No excuses. If you aren’t good at something, work harder and work smarter.
Don’t back down!
Stay motivated and work at your weaknesses. It will all be worth it in the end ✏️
