Passion, Persistence, and Ignoring the Limits

The other day in the park, something caught my attention. A small boy, probably age five or six, was "trying" to play basketball on the outdoor court. The basketball hoop was a regulation size of ten feet while the child was barely, if even, two feet off the ground. I'm sure you could predict how his shots turned out. Every time the little guy shot, the ball only flew towards the rim halfway. What was so intriguing was that he continued to shoot and shoot and shoot! Every time the ball bounced back on the ground, the boy simply picked it up and shot again.
