The Jeremy Lin story is incredibly popular. What lessons can we
learn from this young man? Let’s have a look!
1.Believe in yourself when no one else does无人理睬也要相信自己
Lin is only the 4th graduate from Harvard to make it in the NBA.
He’s also one of only a handful of Asian-Americans to make it. He
was sent by the Knicks to play for their D-League team several weeks
ago. He’d already been cut by two other NBA teams before joining
the Knicks this year.
Tip: You’ve got to believe in yourself, even when no one else
stands by your side.
2.Seize the opportunity when it comes up机会到来时要抓住
Lin got to start for the Knicks because they had to start him.
They had too many incidents: Baron Davis was injured. Billups were
out. Carmelo Anthony was also injured. Stoudemire had to leave the
team because of a family death. Lin made the most of the opportunity.
Tip: You never know when opportunities are going to arise. Often,
they come when you least expect them.
It’s been remarkable to watch how humble Lin remains through
all this media frenzy. It makes his teammates and fans love him
Tip: If you one day are lucky enough to have newspapers want
to put you on the cover in order to sell more, don’t let it
get to your head.
4.Work your butt off努力奋斗
Lin couldn’t have seized his opportunity if he hadn’t worked
like crazy for years perfecting his skills.
Tip: There are no short cuts to hard work. You can only control
what you control and that means you’ve got to work harder than anyone
else you know.
