Can we create our own success?

We certainly can contribute to it, so says Warriors’ point guard, Stephen “Steph” Curry.

Though his case is far from complete, there are lessons to be learned already.

Recently I came across Curry’s 2015, NBA MVP acceptance speech.

Here’s the sage, 5-point advice that he offered:

  • Don’t mimic other people: “Be the best version of yourself in anything that you do. You don’t have to live anybody else’s story.”
  • Don’t sweat your deficits: “Sometimes people make it seem you have to have certain pre-requisites or a crazy life story to be successful in this world, but the truth is you really don’t.”
  • Desire counts: Curry describes this characteristic as “an undying passion for what you do,” and “a relentless drive.” Hard work is a necessity!
  • Dodge nothing!: Live in the moment: “And, I hope I inspire people all around the world to just be themselves. Be humble, and be grateful. Be grateful for all the blessings in your life.”
  • Doggedness pays off: “Work your butt off every single day!”

Get the point?

My Columbia College students put it in their campus vernacular: “Stay woke!”
