Earlier today I was sent a clip about an 11-year old Brazilian boy who was invited to train with the soccer team in Barcelona. This, in and of itself, is a BIG deal, right.
But what makes it even BIGGER is the fact that this 11-year old has no feet.
That’s right. He has no feet, yet he’s playing soccer at a high level.
In the very same email I was given yet another clip, this one of two boys trying to make it big via American Idol.
Both of these young men were able-bodied and both of them were absolutely convinced that they were the BEST.
These two clips epitomize what I’ve been writing about for quite some time, i.e. The Law of Practice.
Saying your “the best” and surrounding yourself with others who fawn about your abilities doesn’t amount to much in the real world.
Setting a goal to be great, focusing on it, then practicing everyday, regardless of where you are and what abilities you may start with, is a far different path than mouthing the words about how wonderful you are.
Watch these two clips listed below, then come on back to this site to gather a couple books – The Unbeatable Man and Expect to Win – Hate to Lose – books that reinforce the right way to get what you want out of life.
The first link – the 11-year old Brazilian soccer player with no feet.
The second clip features two “legends in their own minds” in an audition for American Idol.
Watch these clips NOW. You’re going to love them.
P.S. Both of the books I mentioned are “can’t put it down or stop reading” books – as told to me by the readers of them. Not something I said myself. Here are the links to these books again:
