Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything



If people say your dreams are crazy. If they laugh at what they think you can do — good. Stay that way. Because what non-believers fail to understand is that calling a dream crazy is not an insult, it’s a compliment.

Don’t try to be the fastest runner in your school, or the fastest runner in the world — be the fastest ever. Don’t picture yourself wearing OBJ’s jersey, picture OBJ wearing yours. Don’t settle for homecoming queen or linebacker, do both.

Lose 120 pounds and become an Ironman — after beating a brain tumor.

Don’t believe you have to be like anybody, to be somebody. If you’re born a refugee, don’t let it stop you from playing soccer, for the national team — at age 16. Don’t become the best basketball player on the planet. Be bigger than basketball.

Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.

When they talk about the greatest team in the history of the sport, make sure it’s your team. If you only have one hand, don’t just watch football — play it at the highest level.

And if you’re a girl from Compton, don’t just become a tennis player — become the greatest athlete ever. Yeah, that’s more like it.

So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they’re crazy enough.”



Here's to the crazy ones.

The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.

The round pegs in the square hole.

The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things.

They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.

Sports is good , maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.
