Zaila Avant-garde, a 14 year old from Louisiana, showed us last week how interesting you can be when you are well rounded. Zaila won the Scripps National Spelling Bee. But wait… she also juggles at a high level (see for yourself) and is a real good basketball player. She is interested in many things, and pursues them each wholeheartedly.
What are you pursuing simply because you are interested in it? Athletes, you go after basketball like this: training often, adding a new move, looking for pick up games, watching and learning pros on tv. What are your other passions? Can you be more well rounded in your life?
It’s not accurate to say that someone is just an athlete, or a brain, or a musician; each of us have dimensions. But it is also our responsibility to seek a rich life and develop these interests.
Turn off the TV - read about a subject or a famous person you are interested in.
Pick up an old hobby you enjoyed.
Try something new you have never done before.
And if you need some evidence:
Just an NBA player
Just a golfer
Just an athlete
