Like yesterday, I thought today’s blog would be challenging, but then I remembered Coach Carter. For those that don’t remember Coach Carter, It’s a 2005 movie based on Ken Carter and the Richmond High School Basketball team. It starred Samuel L Jackson, Ashanti, Channing Tatum and Antwon Tanner.
Throughout the movie, Carter asks Timo Cruz (Rick Gonzalez), ‘What is your deepest fear?’ For most of the movie Cruz looks back at his coach with puzzled looks. Then one day, after the students are locked out of the gym and have to raise their grades in order to play, Timo Cruz stands up and and says the full quote, here is that scene:
That quote still brings a tear to my eye.
One thing I have always struggled with my whole life is confidence. I have continuously put myself down over my life, something that I am working on. That’s probably the reason why the quote resonates with me.
The quote is attributed to a lady named Marianne Williamson, you can visit her website is here. Or if you want to watch Coach Carter, it is on Netflix Australia.
