Advice from a legend with bone cancer…


At the March 4th, 1993, Jim Valvano (former NC State Men’s Basketball coach) who had been diagnosed with bone cancer said the following:

“There are 3 things we all should  do every day, Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day.  Number two is think.  You should spend some time in thought. Number three, you should have your emotions move you to tears.  It could be happiness or joy.  If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week and you’re going to have something special.”

Jim Valvano died less than two months later.  People still are quick to remember his passion for life.

How about you?

When is the last time you had an awesome day like he described:   you laughed, you took time to think, and you were moved by your emotions to cry?
