Teach Me How To Jimmer
My little bro is going on a mission today. Actually goes into the Missionary Training Center for our church in about 2 hours! It's sad because he is my best friend and we tight. So last night we were talking about being greater than others or our own low expectations of ourselves. Then we pull into the hotel parking lot and ran into Jimmer Fredette - BYU basketball star, ESPN/NCAA College player if the year, and NBA 11th overall draft pick. Coincidence? No. I don't believe in meaningless occurrences. I believe they all mean something.
And here's what I think running into Jimmer meant: you can be a 6 foot white kid and jack up half court threes and blow everyone's minds! Other people may have had low or average expectations of him...but he didn't. Whatever we are doing...serving a full-time mission, playing ball, or writing a book...we can defy all expectations and blow everyone's minds with our success!
