Sunday morning after the game, the #1 football player in the country wakes up, puts on his favorite sweatshirt and takes a walk downtown. He is quickly surrounded by his fans and fellow students, all telling him what a great game he had and asking for autographs while yelling his name. All of them are wearing his jersey. The All-American football player doesn’t think much of it, just humbly takes his praise, signs his name a few times, looks at all the jerseys and doesn’t make a dime. The school and sponsorships would make the money off his jerseys, his name, his fame...but why can’t he?
He helped over 2000 youngsters, and his legacy stretches significantly beyond simply picking right up heavy things. That is a tribute to 1 of the later pioneers of the powerlifting and one of the strong men to ever walk this planet

This mindset of constantly putting in work and sticking with a future goal will help me succeed in finishing a four year optometric program.
