Maybe you've been on the bench...maybe you've been overlooked too.
If so, you’ll find hope and encouragement in the story of a guy that went from benchwarmer to superstar this week. His name is Jeremy Lin. He never gave up his dream even though he was overlooked and underestimated. He’s a basketball player that you probably never heard about it until this week when he went from Benchwarmer to Superstar. A guy on his team, The New York Knicks got injured, so he was finally put in the game and he is showing everyone what no one knew he is capable of. He’s helping his team finally win.
More people that didn’t give up and have finally succeeded:
-Dr. Seuss was turned down 59 times before he was published.
-Jennifer Hudson didn't make the top 5 in American Idol
-Tom Brady was passed over in the draft by every NFL team 5 times.
-David the runt of the family, was chosen to be king
Just goes to show if you feel overlooked, underestimated, turned down, don’t give up. Believe in your dreams even if no one else does. Maybe we can add you to our list of People that didn’t give up someday! Tell me about a time when refused to give up…
