Jeremy Lin mania swept the US this past year. Recently, I read an article titled “Ten lessons Jeremy Lin can teach us before we go to work Monday morning.”
Some of these lessons were:
Believe in yourself when no one else does.
Seize the opportunity when it comes up.
Find the system that works for your style.
People will love you for being an original, not trying to be someone else.
Work your buns off.
Jeremy Lin got to start for the Knicks because they had to start him. They had too many injuries. Lin could have squandered the opportunity and we would have never noticed. But he made the most of it.
You never know when opportunities are going to arise in life. Often, they’re when you least expect them. Make the most of them, and don’t squander them away.
