    I quite personally feel more passionate about this one a fraction more than the others (I shouldn’t say that really). But it’s true, you know this is like your backbone for most things.

    What lies behind us or what lies before us are tiny matters; compared to what lies within us.
    There are several things that can be classed as someone’s drive, but the great thing about it, is that everybody’s is PERSONAL to them.

    My personal drive?

    It’s to go to the United States.

    To play NCAA Division I College Basketball.

    To make it to the NBA.

    To be the best.

    Obviously, it sounds far-fetched, and may seem extreme, but I honestly do not care.

    As obnoxious as that sounds, of course.

    Because there is honestly a fundamental extra principle we need to enhance.

    There is NO POINT in attempting to explain yourself to the haters, or people who doubt you. Only because they will ONLY understand things from their own perspective, and will automatically be naive.
    It’s true. I mean I made the mistake of consistently trying to explain to people why I do what I do, and they have to pick it apart.

    “No you are doing…”

    “What is the point..”

    And eventually it gets tiresome and you lose the motivation to continue because you slowly begin to listen to what they say and believe them. It’s a natural mistake, so don’t beat yourself up if you’ve done it before too. I have I know that.

    And so this is the point in time where you need to TRUST YOURSELF and YOUR DRIVE.

    You need to think, why am I working towards my goal? What is making me want this? What am I doing it for?

    If you’re a businessman, you’re wanting to be up there, a large turnover and profit.

    If you’re a dancer, you want to reach be the best local, regional, national and finally, internationally.

    If you are a basketball player (such as myself), you want to be the top 10 in the country, and then advance to university basketball, and then eventually, the big league, the NBA.

    Whenever you think about being a winner, there are always several stages of a pyramid if you like to it. And we all need to start at the beginner stages, because there is no such thing as ‘skipping stages’ or ‘cutting corners’.

    Bottom line?

    Don’t try and take shortcuts in life. 100% of the time, you’ll get cut short.
    On a more personal note, I am embarking on a newly adjusted diet, workout program and revision program, in order to boost myself physically and mentally.

    All of these are key in order for me to achieve my goal of obtaining a Full-Ride Scholarship to a NCAA Division I University.

    My Personal Drives:
    Haters
    My Family
    My Friends
    My Imagination
    Small Tastes of Success
    People Who Doubt Me
    Until next time guys,

    Peace.

    Anass.

    P.S. Leave a comment down below of what your drives are, and what changes you are going to make to achieve them!

    Because every year there's a ton of kids who can meet their scholarship requirements, why hang around for one who couldn't.

    It's a completely valid point. But whilst I understand and accept that there are hundreds of thousands of other kids who make it, I don't want to waste the opportunity to try and get there. I've been offered a place at Rhode Island University based on Academics alone, and it's just driven me to try and go for other places too.
