Beating the Odds

Miracle on a Raft

The next time you think the odds are against you, this video can lend some perspective.

It shows little boys who lived in a village built on stilts in water. They wanted to learn about soccer, but had no place to play. So they built a raft to use as a field!

They turned every disadvantage into an advantage. Their playing area was small, so they learned precise ball control. When the ball went into the water, they had to jump in to get it, so they became comfortable playing wet.

They never stopped being hungry, and their program turned into a great one.

Many thanks to one of my former athletes, Taryn Tabano, for sending it to me.
