Just a quick message to anyone who needs a boost of inspiration. I was watching Fox Business videos and I see a young guy being interviewed ( he couldn’t be older than 25). He was talking about his business, Dude Perfect, and he mentioned that it was an accidental success. Basically, he and 5 of his buddies find the absolutely craziest ways to make basketball shots. They make videos of the shots, put them on Youtube, and the videos go viral. The whole ordeal started out as a bet two years ago; and now its turned into a full-fledged business involving speaking contracts, clothing, philanthropy, and a book about turning your passion into a profession (See Go Big). Check it out:
I was sitting there while watching the interview and thinking, “how in the heck does something like this get so big…within two years?” I find their website, read a bit about them, and caught a part of their biography that says, “above all else, our ultimate goal is to glorify Jesus Christ in all we do.” That should challenge someone.
Makes sense..Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked…His delight is in the law of the Lord…He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yield fruit in season…whatever he does prospers – Psalm 1:1-3
Funny thing about this is, I would rather watch their videos than an actual basketball game. That may sound like blasphemy to hard core ball fans out there, but its the truth…enjoy
