wisdom from coaches

17 Nov

Came across this video again recently, and figured I’d share some of the inspiration.  

If you’re a sports fan, you may or may not know about coach Jim Valvano, a former NC State basketball coach, who died of cancer not long after giving the speech below.  He’s better known as “Jimmy V,” which may sound familiar to some.  


For just a glimpse into the patient side of things, or if you need an inspirational pep talk of your own, spend a few minutes and check it out.  


Some words of wisdom:

Take time every day to laugh, to think, to cry.


“Cancer can take away all my physical abilities.  It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul.”


“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”
