Playtime Cares on LeBron James passing Iverson


On Sunday, February 22, 2015, Lebron James (LBJ) passed Allen Iverson on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. One thing that struck me about this accomplishment was the statement by LBJ himself after the game when asked to reflect on what he had done.

It's very, very humbling, and it's an honor to just be named with some of the greats that I watched growing up. And now to know that I passed Allen Iverson on the all-time scoring list, for someone that's not much of a scorer -- as you guys have deemed me -- it is pretty cool."

You may be asking why does this warrant any dialogue from Playtime? The answer to that is really simple.

I am always thinking about children and how to improve their lives. Children are the future, so why not cultivate our future in the present? LBJ’s statement reminded me that no matter what level of success you achieve in life, there will be people that will tell you what you can’t do. Those people will not highlight the many things that you can do…even if you are the best at what you do, as in the case of LBJ.

LBJ reminds us that confidence in one’s self is the first step to success. You have to have the will to believe that what you set out to accomplish is something that can happen by your hard work and dedication. Sometimes in life, the only difference between success and failure is your attitude. Your attitude will affect your perspective on life. You keep a positive attitude, and life has no choice but to give you positive results.

Even with all the success that LBJ has had throughout his career, personally, as well as team success, you will always, and Playtime means ALWAYS, have someone that will have negative things to say about him. Your life is not unlike LBJ’s life. Find the confidence to believe that you will succeed. Find the will to have the proper attitude to succeed.

Playtime Cares and you will find that people will notice that you care as well. That is when the doors of success will be open to you.
