Has this little guy even seen his 10th birthday yet? He’s one feisty little SOB.
If this kid can translate his ‘overcoming the odds’ mentality into athletics or the workforce, we could be looking at the next Floyd Mayweather or Steve Jobs.
And if he takes a career in the military, God help any poor bastard he gets turned loose on.
This plucky little kid doesn’t have a word for ‘quit’. Not even when it looks like he’s beaten.
See for yourself:
The ‘heart of a lion’ that this kid brings to a fist fight used to be hardwired into the character of Americans generally.
We saw it in everything from our attitudes to risk, to our ‘crazy’ independence streak that catapulted us to the forefront of the industry, innovation, and even military strength.
We see that same spirit in Davy Crockett’s final diary entry:
Pop, pop, pop! Bom, bom, bom! throughout the day. No time for memorandums now. Go ahead! Liberty and Independence forever. – Davy Crockett
But these days, too many of us have fallen into the trap of letting the good times ‘domesticate’ us. If you know someone who plays it a little too ‘safe’, or want to challenge yourself to set your own sights a little higher, get your hands on this quick read that packs as big a punch as that kid.
