Taken from an interview on Good.is, here's one response from Houston Texan's running back Arian Foster that can only remind us of two words: Motivation & Inspiration.
"G: What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment to date?
AF: My whole life people would tell me I wouldn't make it to the NFL. In the 7th grade, when my teacher asked me what I wanted to do and I replied, "Play in the NFL," she told me to have a back-up plan. She didn't tell any of the kids who wanted to be doctors or lawyers to have a back-up plan. After college, I didn't get drafted, and I was also cut from my current team. Then this past year, I led the NFL in rushing, and touchdowns, while becoming a pro bowler and First team ALL pro. My biggest accomplishment is overcoming limitations."
Lesson here: Support your local Boys & Girls clubs! You never know whose lives you're affecting :)
