Success Is All About How Bad YOU Want It - Oct 15, 2012

I start this blog by congratulating MIA Academy and Armia for making it to the championship game of the Duda Cup. Well deserve teams that played hard this past weekend. We lost to Armia in the game to go to the championship match. We battled and fought as hard as we can but didn't finish what we started. Me being a competitor and hating to lose I didn't say much on the ride back home to Rustavi, mad, and drenched in frustration from the lost on Sunday. Knowing that if we played just a little bit harder and focused just a little bit more than we would of been in that championship game. That short 20 minute ride home felt like 2 hours and gave me the time to think about what I didn't do to help the team succeed. Than I started to realize that people aren't the same, God didn't make everyone equal nor are their abilities alike. Some people want it just a little bit more than others.
A lot of people don't want success that bad they just kind of want it. My time from Portugal to Qatar now to The Republic of Georgia I have gave up a lot of things that I was use to. Gave up the life of late nights and partying. I figured if I'm going to be up late than I might as well be up doing something more productive, like pertaining to my career and basketball. Many days and nights I gave up sleep just to succeed, most people love to sleep more than being successful. They talk about how bad they want it but their actions speak different.
A quick story; a friend of mine name Richard Rivera who has been for about a few years now endorsed me with his apparel company 2DaHole. He flew me out to Rhode Island before I made my transition to The Republic of Georgia this season. He took me to his home and set me down and told me as well as showed me how to be successful. He didn't have a 5 story business building with big bright letters saying NIKE on the top. He pulled me aside and told me to follow him into this room that was at the back of his condo. Their layed many cabinets of fabric, material, signs, stictchings etc. He said "this is how I make my money, I have no big fancy production but I been doing this my way for 15 years. This is how to be successfull in your own way". He explained that he wanted me to see first hand how he made all his extra money and how his company was ran. I was impressed immediately. I turned around looked at all the nice things he had and thought, that's how you build a business from the ground up...
This simple story explains how a normal man started his business from the ground up to one of the most successful business men in his area. So we all can be successful in our own way. If I'm not practicing, I'm preparing for a game. If I'm not preparing for the game, I'm in the weight room. If I'm not in the weight room, I'm conditioning. If none of these things I'm not doing, I'm handles business with my basketball camps and clinics for the summer. I will be ready for my next battle on the court.

I tell this story because every person now and than needs to have a little pick me up motivation. If I never make another dollar off basketball I consider myself successful as well as blessed. Praise Jehovah

Always remember, Don't Give Up Until You Succeed. Be on the look out for the new 2DaHole website and commercial coming this fall. Nate Bowie (183-G-86, college: Cent.Arkansas)
