Control Your Destiny

In 2010 LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to move to South Beach and play for the Miami Heat. LeBron controlled his own destiny by not allowing public opinion to influence his decision.  He believed that by leaving the Cav’s, his chances of winning an NBA championship would increase.  King James proved that he was right by winning not one, but two NBA titles with the Miami Heat.  LBJ has taught us that we should trust our gut feeling regardless of what others think.  Only you know what’s best for you!

Haters Gonna Hate

LeBron James is arguably the best athlete that the world has ever seen and people still find reasons to hate him. Society seems to have a love hate relationship with LeBron that is built on reasons beyond his amazing basketball and philanthropic achievements.  No matter how many people throw stones at LeBron, he continues to prosper.  LeBron teaches us that having a positive attitude as well as consistent work ethic outweighs negative comments.

Be A Champion

Regardless of the negative comments LeBron received when leaving to play for the Miami Heat. Also, the criticism of individuals saying, “Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, etc., would have never left to team up with each other.”  And despite the fans of Cleveland burning his jersey, LeBron continues to stay true to himself.  After spending four seasons with the Miami Heat, LeBron James decided to return home.  On June 19th, 2016, LeBron’s talent and leadership brought the Cleveland Cavaliers its first ever NBA title.  LeBron James is the true definition of a champion by using adversity to fuel his success.
