It is important to take a step back and reflect once in a while. Enjoy this quote and see if you can find a way to relate it to your life.

 

“Success comes after you conquer your biggest obstacles and hurdles.” -Stephen Curry

 

Anyone who is a Warriors fan knows that Stephen Curry has played his heart out to help bring his team that national recognition that it has been missing for decades. He kept his head down and worked for years to help bring his team together to play as champions.  Curry spent much of his childhood with a basketball in his hand as his father had great success in the NBA and wanted to pass that passion on to his sons.  As a result, Curry built up experience on the court and as he got older he was able to mold that interest into a legendary career.  He worked hard to achieve his goals and by the time he reached the big leagues he was shining so bright it caught the attention of a nation!
