Muscles and Brains

February 22, 2015

Here is an old funny story:
The coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, “I’m not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play.” The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, “Okay, now concentrate… what is two plus two?” The player thought for a moment and then he answered, “Four?” “Four?!?” the coach exclaimed, excited that he got it right.
At that, all the other players on the team began screaming, “Come on coach, give him another chance!”
You may be good with athletics but if you are poor with academics that is not a picture of success but temporary pleasure and later pains. Take your studies seriously and develop both muscles and brains. This is how you secure long term sustainable success.
