I’ve written a post a couple of months ago talking about the Five Minute Journal. In it I’ve described the format, witch includes a weekly challenge. This weeks challenge was to go on YouTube and search: “Jim Valvano espy speech”.
Needless to say, I was not disappointed. In this video, Jim Valvano, a famous NBA coach, was accepting an award and giving a speech. But there is one more thing you need to know before we dive in to the content of the speech; Valvano was diagnosed with cancer, and died a couple of months after the speech.
While battling cancer, he tells us that we need to do three things everyday to live a better life: laugh, think and get in touch with your emotions (or cry). This video, also known as his “never give up” speech, is a must watch!
Here’s the link to the video. Enjoy this life changing speech!
