Jeremy Lin! he just exploded to a star from an unknown underdog, leaded his team 5 wins in a row in a week! What a amazing true cinderella story! I watched his game vs. Lakers last Friday. I was really enjoying the game: he demonstrated his basketball skills and talent: he is smart, he got a high IQ in the basketball. I like his personality: confident, calm and humble. I think these will attribute with his Christian religion, Harvard graduate background and his Chinese descendent. Jeremy's successful story made me realize that Basketball can be played like this: you don't need a very strong, very tall or very fast body, if you have a regular body but you are smart enough and hardworking, you can be a good player as well, like Jeremy Lin! The IQ and skills are more important than the body.
Now I becomes his fan, his story is really inspiring, I learned:
- Always have a big dream. Don't limit your self. You don't have to be genius, you need hard working.
- Craft your skills, practice hard. Jeremy's success is not by accident. I can feel behind scene he must be a hard worker. Since those skills can not be done in a short time.
- Be patient and prepared for the opportunity, you can only seize the chance when you are prepared.
I hope his lin-sanity keeps going!
