In the video below, you will see Brandon Todd discuss his quest to dunk a basketball. Standing at just 5 feet 5 inches, Brandon has developed a serious vertical jump. Few would have thought it was possible for someone with his height and build to even approach the rim. Brandon has soared well above it.
Brandon’s story is perfect example why you should never let anyone else decide what you will pursue and accomplish. As I stated in a previous video (see below), if you want something, it’s up to you to go get it. Don’t let someone else’s opinion stand in the way of your dreams.
I’m sure Brandon had plenty of doubters who told him he was too short for basketball. Imagine if he had listened to them? He would have missed out on the opportunity to excel in both high school and college. It’s safe to say that his life would have panned out entirely different from where it is today.
Learn from his example. If there is something you want to achieve, it’s up to you to find out how far you can go. Bust your ass and don’t listen to those who stand in your way. Find out for yourself.
“Your biggest hurdle isn’t your opponent, it’s yourself.” – Brandon Todd
