Motivation Monday

For those that know me, basketball was is my favorite sport. I grew up watching and playing basketball. It always brings me back to my childhood when I step onto the court and shoot some hoops. I would shoot free throws in my backyard and not go in my house until I made 100 free throws. My friends and I would play all day until the sun goes down. And as we grew up, we would play into the night until they had to turn off the lights.

Here is a video of Derrick Rose for an Adidas commercial. He is one of my favorite NBA players who plays for the Chicago Bulls. I thought this video was fitting for a little motivation on this Monday. He hurt his knee really bad a couple months ago during the first round of the NBA playoffs and his team eventually lost in the first round. But you can see his motivation and determination to win that NBA title.

Whatever setbacks you’ve had in your past, use it as a motivating force to overcome those obstacles and reach the goals you’ve set for yourself. Whether it is shooting 100 free throws, running a marathon, or winning an NBA title, if you truly put your mind to it, you can achieve anything.

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

-John Wooden

Happy Monday Everyone!

      Hi Beth! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Good luck in Nursing School. How many more semesters do you have? The best thing I did during Nursing School was keep a workout regimen. It kept me sane during the whole program!!

        1 1/2 more semesters. Seems like forever of course, but it really is just suiting up and showing up. Oh, and passing those tests…
        I just started a workout program at school. I know I’ll need a good healthy strong back, so I better get started now. I really do feel better since I started. Good advice.
        Take care, Beth
