Jeremy Lin has captured the attention of the sports world and he’s done it in a very unique way. He’s been a team player who has risen to the challenge of having fun on the basketball court. Many analysts…
have put every imaginable spin on his story of his success. An unknown Harvard basketball player, signed midseason to the New York Knicks. What many have missed is that his true talent lies in his ability to make the team better. For him, it is not about the fame, the money, or the stats. It’s about winning as a team. On a team notorious for negative PR he has become a beacon for the world to follow. He is humble, unselfish, and in love with the game he plays.
His story gives me a sense of pride. Here’s a guy in one of the biggest markets in America who understands it’s ok to be yourself. He’s a player who is having fun and having a lot of success while doing it. He works hard so that he can play hard. This mantra has always come up in my life and is one that I try to embrace every day. Lin’s success is proving that it works. So let him be a reminder to you that in order to succeed you need to remember to take time in your life to have fun and try something new.
