Everyday, the average person makes about 35,000 choices. To be great, to try, to work hard, to give up, to scroll online, to listen to music, etc. Many people who have lived long enough knows that one choice can affect you for the rest of your life. This was the message the Rufus Sims, the found of Push tried to explain to a few young men in Detroit. Their ages ranged from 13-19, but their possibilities are wide open.
He asked the youth a simple question, “What would you do if you knew you could not lose”. The answers ranged from ‘play a sport’ to ‘try to talk to a girl’, but the idea was to get them to realize they only they can get in their own way. There are no excuses that they can use when they understand that they can do whatever they plan and work hard for.
That is the PUSH
Here is what one of the boys said as a recap:
