IT’S FUNNY ~ NOW

Funny how you look back and laugh at some failures

I just knew that I would make my high school’s basketball team. I played against my brother and his friends so surely I could compete with girls. I lasted ONE WEEK in tryouts before I was cut (let go). I felt the pain and moved on to track & field.

First day in track practice the coach ran us around a lake in Weequahic Park. I could not run long or fast. Actually, I was less concerned about that than sweating out my perm! So, my track experience lasted ONE DAY.

Disappointed after failing at basketball and track I was still determined to find MY THING. I moved on to tennis. Loved it! Very good at it! I did not care about sweating out that perm. Had I began playing tennis at a young age, who knows, I could be hanging out with Venus & Serena Williams!

Here’s My Point:

  • --->FAILURE IS NOT FATAL!
  • --->FAILURE IN ONE THING COULD LEAD YOU TO YOUR THING!

Learn, Laugh & Keep Moving On….
